Barcelona snatched Arsenal starlet Marcus McGuane for an undisclosed fee.
The young McGuane was a product of the Arsenal academy aged 6 and became a mainstay for the under 23’s.
Barcelona intend for the 18-year-old to place in their B team with a three-year contract amounting to £21.9 million.
The move represents a major role reversal since the Spanish giants are more familiar to losing their best young players to the Premier League. However, fans are hoping that Arsenal will not regret this in the long run.
