|Subject: Juventus sign young Barcelona starlet Fri Aug 29, 2008 10:51 pm|| |
According to L’Equipe, Juventus have swooped to sign highly rated young Barcelona starlet Iago Falque on a free transfer.
The 18-year-old Iago is one of the most promising youngsters currently playing for Barcelona B, and he has attracted the interest of a host of top European clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Ajax.
However, according to French newspaper L’Equipe, Juventus have beaten all their competitors to the punch, and have swooped to sign the left winger.
The Bianconeri have snapped up the teenager on a free transfer, but they will have to pay Barcelona compensation should they sell Iago on, or if he were to become a regular in their first team.
The reason for Iago’s apparent decision to leave was not only his desire to join Juve, but also because of his lack of opportunities in the Barcelona first team.
Juventus are expected to officially announce the signing of the former Spain Under-17 international in the coming hours.
