Barcelona will sign Gimnastic de Tarragona midfielder

Barcelona will sign Gimnastic de Tarragona midfielder Josep Calavera, according to the club’s president.

It was reported last week that the La Liga champions had agreed a deal to sign the 17-year-old, who has been likened to current midfielder Sergio Busquets.

Nastic president Josep Maria Andreu has now confirmed that Barca have agreed to sign the teenager.

Speaking to Ser Tarragona-Radio Reus, he said: “Josep [Calavera] will go to FC Barcelona. It’s like this, everything is agreed.

“The player and his agents were negotiating with Barca. In the end they have reached an agreement and in our case we can only make [sure] that Nastic benefits from this operation.”
