Despite this, the Catalan giants have announced the signing of the England youth worldwide, who scored six goals in nine games for the Young Lions, as well as having scored seven times in the Under-18 Premier League last season.

Although West Brom will understandably be disappointed and frustrated to lose one of their academy graduates who potentially has a huge future they will also see this as an opportunity in which Barry has been unable to turn down. He will live as the club's La Masia residency.

The 16-year-old talented prospect had been with the Baggies since he was six and turned down the offer of a professional contract with the Championship club to continue his football education with the La Liga Champions.

He'll play with the Juvenil A team at first and has signed a three-year contract.
