Barcelona Opinion: Barca signing Louis Barry would be a massive coup
According to a report from The Sun, Barcelona have won the battle with PSG for the signature of Louis Barry from West Bromwich Albion, as the Catalans look to add a gem of a talent to their youth ranks.
The report also adds that Barry has reached a deal with Barca after his contract with the Baggies expired this season.
Interestingly, Barca fended off the Parisians successfully despite the player having a medical passed in principle with them.
Barry – a great striker in the making
The 16-year-old has already achieved a lot at this tender age and the most famous one was winning the golden boot award, representing the Three Lions’ U-16 team at a French tournament last year.
In addition, Barrie also had a fantastic 2018/19 campaign with the Baggie’s U-18 and reserves side, bagging 4 goals and 3 three assists in the process. Predominantly a centre-forward, Barrie can operate as a winger on both flanks.
Barca reinforcing La Masia – a good sign
While the Catalans hold the reputation for having one of the finest academies, the tradition will be kept at high spirits with the signing of Barry, who could be brought much further to spotlight.
Having already produced some of the greatest players in world football and keeping the tradition still intact, the Catalans seem to have taken the right step.
What does the future hold for Barry?
While Barry is deemed to join the youth ranks at first, he has the tendency to excel at a higher rate and can soon see his day with the reserves squad.
