Barcelona youngster Victor Barbera has recently departed from the Catalans and has now joined Club Brugge, a Belgian team, on a free transfer.
Club Brugge signed the Spanish striker on a four-year deal that will keep him with the team until 2027.
Barbera’s move from Spain to Belgium has been planned for some time now.
The 18-year-old Spaniard has been impressive for Barcelona Atletic, the reserve team of FC Barcelona, scoring some remarkable goals.
The future of the forward at Barcelona appeared promising, but unfortunately, he was unable to agree on a new contract with the club.
And as a result, he has decided to move on to the Belgian club. Barbera has followed the same path as Ferran Jutgla, who made a similar move last summer.
Club Brugge, who finished in fourth place during the 2022/2023 season, are currently seeking to enhance their squad to make another title run in the upcoming season.
Ronny Deila has been appointed from Standard Liege to manage the club with the task of reviving the team following a bizarre poor season.
Mikal Skoras and Igor Tiago recently joined the team and it is expected that the signing of Norwegian midfielder Hugo Vetlesen will be formally announced in the coming days.
Club Brugge made Barbera’s transfer known on their official Twitter page, with the statement which read: “Victor Barbera has joined our team from FC Barcelona. The Spanish striker has signed a four-year contract.”
