The La Liga giants posted a tweet from their official account earlier this afternoon sharing the news of the 16-year-old’s move to the Nou Camp, who will play for the Catalan club’s under-19 A side throughout the 2019/20 season:
According to the Evening Standard, Barry has opted to join Barca after interest from French giants PSG and after deciding to turn down the offer of a professional contract from the Baggies to play in the English Championship.
We’re not expecting to see Barry in the Barcelona first-team anytime soon, but he has signed a three-year deal, so he must be considered a pretty special talent, eh?
What do you think of the move, and should more British players go and try their luck on the continent at a young age?
