Man Utd are set to confirm the triple signing of Marc Jurado, Alvaro Fernandez and Isak Hansen-Aaroen when their receive international clearance, according to reports.
Jurado, the 16-year-old right-back, is considered one of the best current talents in Barcelona’s famed development system.
Having spent almost a decade with the club, it was expected that he would commit his future in the same way teenagers Ansu Fati, Ilaix Moriba, Gavi and Ilias have in recent months.
But Jurado wants to test himself in England and has rejected an improved financial offer from Barcelona in favour of a move to Man Utd.
And the Manchester Evening News now claims that two other youngsters will join Jurado in the Red Devils’ academy setup next year.
Hansen-Aaroen, who recently became Tromso’s youngest-ever player, was actually signed by Man Utd last year but he has had to wait until the summer to sign as he was 14 at the time they agreed a deal.
Fernandes has been snapped up on a free transfer too after his deal with Real Madrid expired in the summer and a source told the MEN: “Hopefully they’ll be sorted soon and we can get them confirmed.”
