Manchester United have apparently got a deal in place to bring Barcelona wonder kid Marc Jurado to Old Trafford.

Manchester United have apparently already begun their summer transfer business.

Rumor has it they have picked Barcelona’s pocket for 16-year-old prodigious talent Marc Jurado.

Jurado has been on the books at Barca’s La Masia academy but recently rejected the club’s offer of a three-year professional deal.

According to Manchester Evening News Manchester United specialist Samuel Lockhurst, the Red Devils seized the opportunity and stepped in.

The full-back will apparently join up with the club’s academy teams for next season, and Barcelona will likely receive a pittance of compensation.

Check out some of the highlights that have apparently made Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so desperate to add him to their ranks.

Ole Gunnar Solskajer is taking Manchester United back to their roots, and building from the academy up. Rumor has it the United youth teams are bursting with potential world-beaters.
