    Saw something earlier that suggests we are getting 3 players from Barcelona's academy, anyone know if this is true and if they are any good?

    Which players, could you name them mate? What's the source of the news? I've heard only about our interest in Cucurella (LB), who is an astonishing talent.

    Moreno (striker), Gonzalez (midfielder) and Fati (no position mentioned). Source was Sun on news now so probably bollocks

    That's not news, this was posted in Dec 2016:

    Gonzalez is a son of our staff member Fran, the S*n started speculations in Nov 2016, as soon as his dad joined City:

    So, probably bollocks, but you never know.
    Edit: the piece on Gonzalez joining us this summer: http://www.mcfcwatch.com/2016/11/24...teenager-set-to-join-manchester-city-in-2017/

    Even with the Sun, there's no smoke without fire & often tabloid reports of youth transfers do end up being correct. I guess it's a low risk story, because if the deals don't happen, it gets forgotten about. Not that they care about being credible or reliable, mind...

    Aren't we banned from signing Academy players for 3 years?

    Only from other PL or EFL clubs, and its only 1 year, with 1 suspended for 3 years, so long as we behave in future.

    Sergio Gomez seems like a super talented player if we want to add someone to our youth ranks.
