Manchester United's New Signing Marc Jurado Holds Record For The Fastest Youth Goal Ever Scored

Manchester United's New Signing Marc Jurado Holds Record For The Fastest Youth Goal Ever Scored

It was announced last month that Manchester United are set to sign Barcelona wonderkid Marc Jurado after the club agreed a £1.5 million deal to sign the talented full-back.

Jurado, who spent this season with Barcelona's U16's, reportedly turned down a contract offer from the Spanish giants worth €60,000 annually, according to ESPN, in order to join the youth ranks at Old Trafford.

He announced his departure from the Catalan giants on Monday night with a post that read:

"It's never easy to leave a team that has given you everything. FC Barcelona has been my second home, my second family, where I have developed as a player and as a person.

"Today it's time to say goodbye, but not before expressing my gratitude to each of the people who have helped me since I started in the prebenjamín in the year 2011.

"I have been lucky to share my passion with a fantastic generation, with which I will always be linked."

In recent months, the 16-year-old's individual highlights have emerged online, and many are impressed with Jurado's talent.

The youngster was clealy rated highly at the Camp Nou but United appear to have completed a deal to sign the right-back, who holds the record for the fastest youth goal ever scored.

Back in 2013, in a game against Viladecans, the youngster made a tackle and scored within five seconds of kickoff during the U10's Second Division fixture.

Barca went on to win the game 9-0 but Jurado's lightning quick opener certainly got people talking.

It is believed Barcelona are 'disappointed' to lose Jurado to United and are upset with the way his agent, Carlos Lacueva, handled the incoming transfer.

Meanwhile many fans of the Premier League club will be excited by his undeniable potential, especially with all the highlight reels emerging online.
