Bellerín joins the Leões on a permanent deal and Barça will receive a €1 million transfer fee plus another €1 million in performance-related bonuses and an undisclosed fixed percentage of a future sale, according to multiple reports.
Bellerín leaves after just six months having joined Barça on a free transfer in the summer. The Spaniard suffered an injury immediately after arriving and ended up making only seven appearances for the club, and he now moves to Portugal as Sporting identified the 27-year-old as a replacement for Pedro Porro who joined Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the day.
Good luck, Héctor!
