Manchester United will officially sign Barcelona teenager Marc Jurado 'in the coming days', according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly set to sign Barcelona teenager Marc Jurado 'in the coming days'.

The Red Devils are believed to have agreed a deal with the 16-year-old in May but have thus far been unable to confirm the youngster's arrival due to issues over international clearance.

According to Goal, though, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are expected to make an announcement on the highly-rated right-back this week.

Jurado is believed to have rejected the chance to sign a three-year contact with Barca, and United are expected to pay in the region of £200,000 as a compensation fee.

The Spaniard will have to wait before linking up with his new teammates, though, as a government ruling due to the coronavirus pandemic means that he will be forced to quarantine for 14 days.

Jurado joined Barca's La Masia academy at the age of seven.
