Man Utd to confirm transfers for Marc Jurado and Alvaro Fernandez with Barcelona & Real Madrid starlets isolating in UK

MANCHESTER UNITED are set to confirm the signings of defenders Marc Jurado and Alvaro Fernandez.

The Spanish teens will go into the United youth set-up once final clearance is sealed.

Jurado, 16, is joining from Barcelona while Fernandez, 17, arrives from Real Madrid.

The pair are understood to be isolating with a local family after moving from Spain as the country is currently on the UK’s two-week quarantine list under Covid-19 guidelines.

The young duo were snapped in Adidas United training gear on Jurado's Instagram and the outgoing Barca kid has already changed his Instagram bio to say "Manchester United player".

The right-back is thought to have rejected a three-year deal to remain at the Nou Camp and arrives alongside fellow defender Fernandez.

They will join former Sunderland teenagers Joe Hugill and Logan Pye who made the move to Old Trafford in July.

Czech goalkeeper Radek Vitek also joined the United youth set-up from Sigma Olomouc.

United are also signing Tromso forward Isak Hansen-Aaroen, who turned 16 last weekend.

The Norwegian wonderkid last month became the youngest ever Tromso player, making his debut at the age of 15 years 319 days — United are now awaiting paperwork to complete the deal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has also given a trial to ex-Yeovil Town forward Devon Arnold.

The 18-year-old bagged a winning goal on debut for United's Under-23s in a 1-0 win over Stoke on Tuesday.

If he continues to impress, the Red Devils will be able to snap him up permanently without a transfer fee as he is a free agent.
