Barcelona’s Marc Jurado has hinted on Instagram that he could be set to join Manchester United.
As reported in the Evening Standard, the 16-year-old turned down a professional contract with the Catalan club.
The Spaniard, who spent nine years with Barca, has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils’ academy and it seems he has confirmed that Old Trafford will be his next destination.
Following United’s 2-1 Europa League semi-final defeat against Sevilla, Bruno Fernandes posted on Instagram: “Unfortunately our journey in the Europa League ends here. It wasn’t what we expected. We wanted to be in the final and fight for the trophy we so desired. Whilst we congratulate Sevilla for making it to the final, we still played well and we didn’t deserve to stop here.
“Thank you to all my teammates and staff who welcomed me so well over these past months at the Red Devils. I hope to continue to learn and grow everyday with you, and that we conquer many titles in the future!
“Together we loose (sic.), together we make mistakes and together we grow #MUFC.”
Jurado responded to the Portugal playmaker’s post by simply replying: “we move keep fighting.”
Despite this, the Premier League club have not yet announced that they have signed the right-back but it seems as though it’s just a matter of time.
