Baku, January 12, AZERTAC
Barcelona and Sevilla have reached an agreement for the transfer of forward Munir El Haddadi to the Andalusian club pending a medical and contract, according to goal.com.
Goal previously reported the 23-year-old Munir, who was in the last six months of his deal with the La Liga champions, was intent on joining Sevilla this summer when his deal expired after rejecting contract offers from Barcelona.
However, the Andalusian club were hopeful of sealing a deal for Munir in January and Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde also voiced his desire to see the situation resolved by the close of the window.
"It seems Munir has taken a decision and, evidently, the club have also made a decision," Valverde said in a news conference on Wednesday.
"We want a solution as soon as possible. If that can be this month, even better."
The two La Liga sides have now done just that, coming to an agreement for Munir to join immediately, with Barcelona announcing they have received a €1,050,000 fee.
