Moroccan winger Ez Abde is reportedly set to sign a new contract extension at Barcelona and then leave on loan for the rest of the 2022-23 season.
The latest update on the youngster comes from Relevo who also reckon that Real Valladolid are currently looking favorites for Abde’s signature.
Abde’s future has been uncertain for a while but it seems a loan is the best option given the wide attacking options Xavi has at his disposal this season.
Barca have added Raphinha this summer to a squad that already includes Ferran Torres, Ousmane Dembele, and Ansu Fati.
Memphis Depay is also expected to leave this summer, although a move to Juventus appears to have collapsed and it’s not clear what will happen next.
Manchester United are being linked with a move for the Dutchman, who spent two years at the club before joining Ligue 1 club Lyon in 2017.
