The Catalan club had spent several weeks trying to retain the young right-back because, despite being only 16 years old, the club’s technical managers were handling positive reports on his evolution.RELATED
A source said that recently Barcelona transferred a succulent offer to Jury to renew three years with figures that would increase with the passing of the seasons.
According to this information, the jury would have earned 60,000 euros the first year, 80,000 the second and 100,000 euros in the third. In addition, if in that period of time he debuted with the subsidiary team, the footballer would have entered a bonus of more than 200 thousand euros.
Jury entered the list of footballers that Barça wanted to have controlled for the future.

However, although last season the club made a great economic effort to retain Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba, in this course the priorities were to renew Pablo Pérez, known as Gavi and Ilias Akhomach. Both negotiations are already practically closed but their signing has been delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As explained by the Sport newspaper, Manchester United will pay Barcelona about 200 thousand euros in rights by the Jury.
With this departure of a youth squad from Barcelona to Manchester, the flight of talent from La Masia to the Premier League continues. The last to arrive in that city were Eric García and Adrià Bernabéu, who signed for Manchester City. Also, at the club they still remember the escape of Gerard Piqué Old Trafford in 2004.
