Riqui Puig’s proposed move from Barcelona to LA Galaxy seems to be pretty much a done deal with the midfielder set to sign a three-year deal with the MLS side.

The latest update comes from Fabrizio Romano who reports that everything is now agreed and the only thing missing is the final confirmation.

Puig will move on a free transfer and sign a three-year deal with LA Galaxy, although the deal is expected to contain a buy-back option.

The midfielder will leave after finally accepting he’s not in Xavi’s plans for the future following the arrival of Franck Kessie and the emergence of youngsters such as Pedri, Gavi and Nico Gonzalez.

Puig’s departure will also free up the No. 6 shirt at Barcelona which is expected to go to 17-year-old Gavi. We could also have an update on Gavi’s renewal shortly with the youngster set to turn 18 on Friday.
