We are delighted to bring you the news Manchester United have confirmed that international clearances have now been received for two new additions at U18 level ahead of the 2020-21 season, with a third signing also being finalised.
Although a lot of fans will argue that the first team hasn’t seen enough additions to date in the summer transfer window, with Donny van de Beek being the only signing but a good one at that, the club has been working hard to sign the best young players in Europe.
Well, primarily Spain…
Defenders Marc Jurado and Alvaro Fernandez Carreras have joined the club’s Academy from Spain’s two biggest clubs, Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
Fernandez is a 17-year-old left-back and Jurado plays at right-back.
The club also confirms the signing of Isak Hansen-Aaroen, subject to international clearance.
Jurado and Fernandez Carreras have had to follow the Government’s self-isolation guidance since arriving to Manchester. The pair are living together with a host family who have followed quarantine measures to ensure the youngsters are kept safe and being cared for during this difficult time.
Welcome to the club, lads!
