Barcelona beat PSG to signing of English wonderkid

Barcelona have reportedly won the hotly-contested battle to sign English wonderkid Louie Barry.

Barry left West Brom at the end of the season having failed to agree terms on his first ever professional contract.

The 16-year-old is seen as one of the most talented strikers in his age group in Europe and had been targeted by Paris Saint-Germain.

Barry actually had a medical at PSG earlier this week, but Barcelona swooped right at the last minute and are confident they have done enough to sign the teenager.

It’s thought that the Catalan side will pay West Brom around €130,000 in compensation.
