Sevilla have confirmed that they have reached an agreement in principle to sign Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi.
After struggling to break through into Ernesto Valverde’s side this season, with just seven La Liga appearances to his name, Munir was tipped to leave the Camp Nou in search of regular first team football.
The Catalan giants’ La Liga rivals have now confirmed via their official club website that the 23-year-old has signed a contract with them, with a fee for the winger reported to be in the region of €1m.
Munir made his debut for Barcelona aged just 18 when the Catalans took on Elche under Luis Enrique in the 2014/2015 season.
The Spaniard was a star of the Barcelona Under-19 side that won the UEFA Youth League in 2014, and went on to make a total of 56 appearances for his boyhood club.
In a trophy-laden spell at Camp Nou, Munir picked up the La Liga title twice, the Copa del Rey twice, a Champions League, a FIFA World Cup, a UEFA Super Cup and two Spanish Super Cups.
Despite the club’s success, Munir was often on the periphery of the first-team squad and struggled to establish himself as a consistent starter in the team.
First off lets start with Munir’s stats from last season whilst on loan at Alavés:
33 Games (23 Starts)
Copa del Rey
4 Games (1 Start)
You may think these stats aren’t amazing but when you look into them its get very interesting pic.twitter.com/8W5LJKh1sf
