Aleix Vidal’s time as a Barcelona player seems to be coming to an end with reports claiming he will return to Sevilla on a permanent basis.

According to Sport, Sevilla will pay upto €9 million plus €2m in add-ons for the 28-year-old.

Vidal is currently part of Barcelona’s pre-season tour squad in the United States but is expected to return to Europe and sign with Sevilla.

He only managed four La Liga starts last season for Barcelona so it’s no surprise to see him depart. He’ll be hoping for more game time under Pablo Machin.

Vidal’s first game could indeed be against Barcelona with the two teams set to meet in the Supercopa de España on Sunday 12th August in Tangier.
