Spanish giants Barcelona are furious at Arsenal after they snapped up highly-rated 16-year-old defender Julio Pleguezuelo, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Gunners have a habit of stealing youngsters from the famous Barcelona youth set-up and now they want the Spanish FA to close down a loophole which allows their best youngsters to escape before signing professional terms.

And they have done it once again for the highly-rated sixteen year old, who has already shown the type of ability that could make him one of the games greats in the coming years.

The Gunners have signed a real talent and although he isn’t the big name that everyone wanted to see, he will surely be followed in by some more top-quality players that will bring the success that many fans have been waiting to see for the last eight years.
