Barcelona Wonderkid Louie Barry,16, Set To Join Aston Villa For £3 Million

Barcelona Wonderkid Louie Barry,16, Set To Join Aston Villa For £3 Million

Barcelona are set to rake in £3million from Aston Villa for highly-rated teenage striker Louie Barry.

The 16-year-old English striker only joined from West Brom in July 2019 and is now reportedly on his way back to the Midlands.

Barry was part of West Brom's team that made it to the FA Youth Cup semis last season and has been capped by England U17s.

Barcelona have yet to pay the £235,000 they were due to West Brom in compensation for his July move.

West Brom are said to be furious about the situation and are considering their options, including legal action.

Now the Catalan giants are also about to make a tidy profit on a talent they have only had at their club for six months.

Barry has only played in three UEFA Youth League games for Barcelona and now set to leave the famed 'La Masia' academy.

The teen striker was described as "one of the best young players in English football" by Barcelona when they signed him.

He became the first ever English player to join the academy from which the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta graduated.

PSG also were interested in signing him and Barry reportedly had a medical in the French capital before deciding to go to Spain instead.

Although he plays for England now, Barry has played for Republic of Ireland U16s and there could be a tug of war for him at senior level in the future.
