Barcelona beat PSG to sign 16-year-old striker Barry

Barcelona beat PSG to sign 16-year-old striker Barry”

Barcelona has signed English wonderkid Louie Barry from West Brom after he rejected a £2.7million move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Birmingham-born 16-year-old, who has represented Ireland at underage level, will go into the Catalan club's U19s A squad on a three-year deal.

"[Barry] is an worldwide with the English Under-16 team, for whom he has played nine games and scored seven goals", Barcelona said in a statement.

Much like with the disputed case of Declan Rice, Barry has also been the subject of his dual nationality, turning out for both England and Ireland's respective worldwide teams, but it now seems clear that he has chosen to represent England on a permanent basis following some deliberation.

Barcelona will have to pay at least €130,000 to West Brom in training compensation for Barry, per FIFA's regulations, although sources have indicated to ESPN FC they are willing to pay more as a goodwill gesture.

He'll play with the Juvenil A team at first and has signed a three-year contract. The 16-year-old English striker comes from West Bromwich Albion and will play in the A Youth Team'.
