The Spanish club considers Barry as “one of the best young players in English football”. He will now play for their Under-19 squad next season.
Birmingham-born Barry had been with the Baggies since he was six.
He won the golden boot with three goals as he helped England Under-16s win Val-de-Marne, a Uefa tournament, last year.
He also scored two goals in four games as England Under-16s finished third at the Montaigu Tournament in France earlier this year.
