Valencia - Barcelona Transfer News: Paco Alcacer and Munir Deal Looks Done Amid Photo Leak

New, comments

As if it wasn't obvious already, the deal for Alcacer looks a sure thing now that a photo of the player wearing a Barcelona shirt leaked

The rumors have been swirling for so long that they may not really be called rumors anymore, just leaked details of a sure thing. Paco Alcacer is leaving Valencia to join Barcelona for 30 million euro, plus variables, while Munir El-Haddadi is going the other way on loan, with an option to buy, with an option for a buy-back (got all that?).

But the biggest leak yet has come from the FC Barcelona official site. It seems that today, the site accidentally published a picture of Alcacer wearing a Barcelona shirt, with text promoting a contest to win a signed shirt. "Welcome Paco Alcacer!" it read, adding: "The young Spanish forward is the sixth signing of the 16/17 season and we want to celebrate his arrival by drawing for a shirt he has signed exclusively for Barcelona fans."

Of course, once word spread, the page was deleted, but the internet never forgets.

Now it seems, it's just a matter of making an official announcement.
