Reports suggest the deal is worth south of €5 million, and Barca will also receive a percentage of any future sales. However, the final number has not been disclosed.
Mingueza is one of only three players in Barcelona’s history to play at every level – including the senior team – since joining. la masia,
He made his debut in the Champions League under Ronald Koeman during the 2020/21 season. The 23-year-old also scored two goals during his senior stint – one against Huesca, and another against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
While traditionally a centre-back, Mingueza often played as a right-back during the last two seasons, making several assists in the process. His crossing and long passes were remarkable every time he stepped on the pitch.
However, the signing of Erik García last summer, and Andreas Christensen and Jules Kaundé, this time made their place in the team obsolete.
We wish Mingueza the best of luck in his future endeavours.
