Munir Joins Sevilla From Barcelona For $1.2M

"We want a solution as soon as possible".

However, the clubs have instead reached an agreement for him to join the club in the January window, with Barcelona annoucing they have received a €1,050,000 fee. He returned to Barcelona this season and has made seven appearances in the league, with one start, scoring once.

Munir has had loan spells at Valencia and Deportivo Alaves over the previous two seasons and has failed to force himself into Ernesto Valverde's plans this term, making just 11 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.

The 23-year-old striker turned down a contract extension from Barcelona and would be out of contract this summer, leading to the low price.

Entering the past year of his contract, there was no loan for Munir to begin the 2018-19 season, and he played just seven times for Barcelona, scoring once in the league. That top choice has always been Munir who will join the club in June if a deal can't be reached in January.

A Spain youth global, Munir has been capped once for the senior side, coming on for a 13-minute appearance against Macedonia in 2014.

Meanwhile, the move makes it increasingly unlikely Sevilla will strike a deal for struggling Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.

Munir becomes Sevilla's second signing of the day, following their capture of Ajax defender Max Wober earlier on Friday.
