Barcelona closing in on Guido Rodríguez says Fabrizio Romano

Barcelona closing in on Guido Rodríguez says Fabrizio Romano

Barcelona are closing in on their first signing of the summer as the Catalan club are waiting to get the transfer of Real Betis’ Guido Rodríguez over the line. 

The World Cup winner will leave the Seville-based club at the end of the season when his contract expires and already has a deal in place to move to Barcelona. The midfielder’s contract at Barca will be a two-year deal with the Spanish giants having the option to extend it by a further season.

However, no contract can be signed until Barcelona find out their financial fair play situation as the Catalan team still have major financial issues, reports Fabrizio Romano.

Once this is complete, Barca will complete the deal for Rodríguez, a move Xavi has already given his seal of approval to.

The Argentina star will leave Real Betis after spending the last four years at the club, making 171 appearances for the La Liga side and winning Copa del Rey in 2022.
