Manchester City have completed the signing of 16-year-old Juan Larios from Barcelona.

Larios, who plays as a full-back, had been offered an extended stay at Barca on a professional contract, but City reportedly offered a higher salary in order to bring him to their burgeoning academy.

The fee is around £400,000 for the young Andalusian, who will join an ever-expanding academy of young players who City will develop in house or send out on loan.

It isn't the first time Man City have snatched up a promising La Masia talent, having previously signed Eric Garcia when he was 16-yeard-old.

Now, Garcia is wanted back by Barcelona and the player is reportedly keen on the move.

So far this summer, City have recruited goalkeeper Mikki van Sas (16), full-backs Yan Couto (18) and Kluiverth Aguilar (18), midfielders Romeo Lavia (16) and Josh Adam (16), plus forwards Pablo Moreno (18) and Liam Smith (17).
