Barcelona confirmed their another January departure late on Friday with Moussa Wague joining Ligue 1 side Nice on loan.

The deal sees the full-back move on loan until 30 June 2020 and includes a “non-obligatory purchase option” which means we could see him back at the Camp Nou.

Here are the full details:

“FC Barcelona and OGC Nice have reached an agreement for the loan transfer of Moussa Wague until June 30.

“The French team will pay the player’s wages and has a non-obligatory purchase option of 10 million euros, plus 500,000 euros in variables.

“Should the French club decide to purchase the player outright, FC Barcelona would have a future purchase option for 15 million euros until June 2021. After the 2020/21 season, the club reserves the right of first refusal on any future sale of the player.”

Wague’s departure seems a bit of a shame. He hasn’t been given too many opportunities to impress but has shown potential on his rare first-team outings.
