Barcelona sign Louie Barry

As confirmed by ESPN on Sunday, Barcelona have signed teenage English striker Louie Barry.

Louie Barry is just 16-years-old.

Barcelona have managed to beat some of the biggest clubs in Europe to land Barry. ESPN report:

Barcelona have beaten Paris Saint-Germain to the signing of highly rated England youth international Louie Barry, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

Many of Europe’s top clubs have been pursuing the youngster, including Barca, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Juventus.

How Barcelona beat PSG to Louie Barry

Barry’s move to Barcelona will come as a blow to PSG.

ESPN reveal that PSG offered the teenager a higher financial package. However, Barry opted to join Barcelona because of their vision:

Barry underwent a medical on Thursday in Paris before a late change of heart saw him head to Barcelona, where he signed a long-term contract on Saturday.

He would have earned far more in France, but the sporting plan presented by Jose Mari Bakero and Guillermo Amor convinced him to change his mind at the last minute.

Louie Barry & West Brom

Last week, the Express & Star confirmed that Louie Barry had rejected a contract offer to stay with West Brom.

West Brom offered the forward a three-year deal.

For the record, Barry never made a senior appearance for the Baggies.

It was also confirmed that Barcelona will pay West Brom just £235,000 for the teenager.
