Manchester United have added three new names to their academy with Marc Jurado, Alvaro Fernandez Carreras and Isak Hansen-Aaroen all making the move to Old Trafford.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made just one signing this summer when it comes to his first-team squad with Donny van de Beek joining from Ajax.
The Red Devils have been regularly linked with a move for Jadon Sancho though are still to complete a deal for the Borussia Dortmund star.
But they have added to their academy with Jurado and Fernandez Carreras joining the club from Spain having received international clearance.
Defender Jurado, 16, played in Barcelona’s Cadet A side before completing his move to Manchester.
While Fernandez Carreras is a 17-year-old full-back who has mainly operated on the left side for Real Madrid’s Juvenil C team.
United have also confirmed a deal for Hansen-Aaroen from Tromso but are still awaiting international clearance.
Paul Pogba has handed Manchester United a boost after returning to training after recovering from Covid-19.
The French international tested positive for the virus last month and has spent the last two weeks in quarantine at home.
The illness forced Pogba to pull out of the recent Nations League internationals against Sweden and Croatia.
But he has made a full recovery and joined the rest of his United team-mates in training today ahead of this weekend’s pre-season friendly at Aston Villa.

The new season is yet to start and Jose Mourinho is already fuming about a fixture schedule that could see Tottenham play nine games in the first 22 days.
Mourinho demanded to know who devised the plan – which he branded ‘not human – and threatened to send his youth team out in the Carabao Cup.
‘If I think too much about it I will get depressed,’ said Spurs boss. ‘I want to go into every match with a smile, but I asked my boys which of them thinks they can play all these nine matches for 90 minutes and nobody told me, ‘I can’.
‘So we all are very, very aware that it is impossible to do it. It is not human. In the end, we end up asking who are the illuminated people making these decisions? I would like to know because in this moment they hide.
