And despite his club convincing him to stay, it looks likely Jurado will transfer his services to the Premier League next season.
It is believed the promising right-back has enjoyed significant rise with the La Liga giants including an improved salary but has since made up his mind on leaving.
He has been playing for Barcelona's Cadet A team and was due to earn a promotion to the Juvenil B side next term.
It will be recalled Barcelona have previously lost top prospects to Premier League clubs including the likes of Gerard Pique, Cesc Fabregas and Hector Bellerin.
Meanwhile, Jurado's imminent switch to United comes just days after it emerged the Manchester club had beat Arsenal and Spurs to the signing of Joe Hugil.
The two clubs agreed a deal worth £250,000 for the Sunderland academy star subject to a medical, according to Daily Mail.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona are planning hard to sign Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez and they are even said to be considering selling Arturo Vidal for them to raise money to buy the player.
Lautaro Martinez has been impressive so far for Inter Milan in which his performances have caught the interest of Barcelona.
According to the report by Marca, Inter Milan have already slapped £96 million release clause on Lautaro Matinez and Barcelona will now need to sell a player or two before they can go for him.
