According to Diario de Sevilla, Sevilla and Barcelona seem to be close to an agreement to bring young forward Rodri (21) to Barcelona B for the upcoming season in the Segunda. The player sees the move as beneficial and his agent says that the final decision will be made soon.
With the exit of Nolito to Benfica and the injury to Jonathan Soriano, Barca B are in need of a striker and the young Andulasian is seen as the solution.
The Catalan club ensures that the clubs are in the decisive phase of negotiations, although there is still some negotiation between what Sevilla want, 1 million euros with a buy-back option, and Barcelona has offered, half a million plus another amount close to one million in variables.
Rodri himself understands that it is difficult for him to get minutes with Sevilla’s first team and the choice of Barcelona B to get more playing time excites him. According to his agent Enrique Rosado, “He sees his situation in Sevilla to play is remote, because they will bring in another striker and Barcelona is a very good option. We’re hoping this week will be something definitive, There must be agreement between the clubs. But there are three parts that have to be put in agreement. ”
