Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday that they have re-signed Marc Cucurella from Eibar.

The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Eibar, and the club then exercised their purchase option to sign him for €2 million.

However, his deal also included a buy-back option for Barcelona, and the Spanish champions have now paid €4m to bring him back to the Camp Nou.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Cucurella, and whether he will be given a chance at Barcelona or moved on again.

Rumors in Spain on Tuesday had claimed that the club could look to use Cucurella, or Juan Miranda, in a deal to bring Junior Firpo to the Camp Nou.
