Barcelona are reportedly set to bring talented youngster Kays Ruiz-Atil back to the club on a free transfer after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired.

The 18-year-old came through the Barca academy but was one of several players to be released after the club was sanctioned by FIFA regarding the transfer of Under-18s.

Ruiz-Atil has already said goodbye to PSG in a post on social media and is now expected to return to the Catalan giants and join Barcelona B, according to journalist Matteo Moretto for Sky Sport Italia.

The youngster has also published a video on Instagram stories which will fuel speculation about a possible Barcelona return.

Ruiz-Atil made his PSG debut in September 2020 but only went on to make a handful of substitute appearances after that. The youngster didn’t appear to do enough to convince Mauricio Pochettino of his quality and will now seek a new challenge elsewhere.

If he does move back to Barcelona then he will become the B team’s second signing of the summer. The club announced earlier this week that Ferran Jutglà has joined from Espanyol B.
