Even though there have been a few reports saying Marc Jurado is on his way to Manchester United, there are outlets who are still cautious before reporting the move.
Website Fichajes has an interesting piece on the 16-year-old saying he should soon be free to make the transfer, since he hasn’t agreed a contract extension with the Camp Nou side.
Despite calling La Masia one of the best factories of players in the world, the report makes some heavy criticism towards Barça, explaining people are becoming used to seeing youngsters deciding to leave the club.
It’s claimed the Catalan side has been managing the transition of these players very poorly, giving them no confidence they’d have a chance in the first team someday. That’s why they end up feeling attracted by other sides, and move not inly for a better contract, but also for a better career plan.
That’s why Manchester United took advantage of the situation and should soon confirm Jurado’s arrival. It’s said the Red Devils have been following him for months, and have the chance of taking one of Barcelona’s most promising youngsters.
The Red Devils will ‘take advantage’ of the negativity around La Masia, and can now make Jurado’s signing a ‘reality’, say Fichajes.
