Barcelona sign 16-year-old English starlet Louie Barry

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

"He plays at centre-forward, although he can also play on the right wing, and has signed from West Bromwich Albion, his club since he was six years old".

Barcelona have signed teenage West Brom striker Louie Barry, the LaLiga giants have announced. "Next season he will be part of Barca's Under-19 squad".

According to reports in The Guardian, Louie Barry apparently had his medical with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) before the Catalans stepped in at the very last minute and hijacked his move, reportedly convincing him to join the ranks at La Masia, the club's famed academy. He had played nine times for England's Under-16 side, scoring seven goals, and having netted 10 in five for the Under-15s a year ago, he also featured for West Brom's Under-23 side last season.


Barry won the golden boot with three goals as he helped England Under-16s win Val-de-Marne, a Uefa tournament, last year.

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. Club technical director Luke Dowling confirmed to the Express and Star that the youngster had been offered a three-year deal, with the first 12 months a scholarship followed by a two-year professional contract.
