Munir has made 11 appearances in all competitions for Barca this season, scoring twice, but will now continue his career at Sevilla.
Machin’s side are flying high in La Liga this season, they are in third place in the table just two points behind Atletico Madrid in second.
Munir was expected to move on this season, as he’s out of contract in the summer and had been unable to agree a new deal with Barca.
