Barca’s Robert Navarro joins Monaco

Monaco have completed the signing of Barcelona’s highly-rated youngster Robert Navarro on a five-year contract.

The Spanish attacking midfielder turned 16 in April and in doing so became eligible to speak to other clubs in Europe and had been linked to both Arsenal and Manchester City.

Last month, a report in Diario Sport claimed Navarro has agreed an initial three-year move alongside an option for the club to add a further two at their own discretion.

The move was announced via official media streams on Monday and the Blaugrana will only be entitled to development rights, with no transfer fee involved.

The move follows one year on from Jordi Mboula switching from the Catalan giants to Monaco, for whom he made three first-team appearances last season.
