Man City closing on deal for Barcelona youngster Juan Larios

Manchester City are closing on a deal for Barcelona youngster Juan Larios.

The Daily Mail says City are completing the signing of Barcelona's highly-rated defender Juan Larios in a continued recruitment drive of emerging talent.

Larios, who turned 16 in January, is making the switch from La Masia. The club's academy already have talented full backs a year older than him in Josh Wilson-Esbrand and Oscar Tarensi.

City will be on their way to making at least nine signings in the last three months, kicked off by right back Yan Couto's arrival from Coritiba in Brazil.

City are also moving closer to sealing a deal for Celtic teenager midfielder Josh Adam, with the 17-year-old set to join fellow Scot Liam Smith, who signed from Kilmarnock in March.
