Manchester United have completed the signing of Spanish teenage midfielder Arnau Puigmal.
Puigmal, 16, joins from Espanyol and has already been at Carrington to finalise the deal as well as pose with the new home shirt as confirmation of his transfer.

We were first linked with Puigmal back in May when reports suggested we had agreed a deal to bring him to United and whether or not they were accurate at the time, it’s now proven to be the case.
United’s academy is having a major influx of new faces this summer with up to ten new arrivals joining our U18s ranks as well as a new U23s boss joining in Ricky Sbragia who re-joined the club for his second tenure at Carrington.
Puigmal will go into the U18s set-up and in his first season he’ll be on a scholarship agreement, meaning he’ll have to impress enough to earn a professional contract once he turns 17. We’ll keep an eye on his performances with the U18s to see how he gets on.
