A significant development is that Oriol Romeu, who will be joining FC Barcelona from Girona FC, is almost ready to become the club’s fourth important signing of the summer transfer window.
After failing to sign Marcelo Brozovic, the 31-year-old midfielder and former La Masia graduate became the Catalans’ top target to strengthen the pivot position.
For some time now, talks with Girona have been ongoing, and this past weekend, progress was finally accomplished.
According to numerous sources, Barcelona will spend roughly €5 million plus additional fees to get Romeu from their regional rivals. Pablo Torre will also be loaned out and move the other way.
An announcement will be made shortly after that is finished, thus everything points to Romeu’s return to his old club being announced today.
