Updated: August 23, 2013

Barcelona, Spain (Sports Network) – Barcelona added to its stable of young
talent on Friday by signing Spain Under-20 international Denis Suarez from
Manchester City.

The 19-year-old winger has signed a contract with Barcelona that runs until
2017, and he will initially join the Barcelona B team with a buyout clause of
$16 million.

That number will jump to $47 million if Suarez reaches the senior team.

Suarez moved to Manchester City from Celta Vigo in 2011, but he struggled to
break into the first team at the Etihad Stadium, appearing in just two
competitive games despite being named City’s Young Player of the Year in 2012.
