Midfielder Sergi Samper to leave Barcelona
Barcelona. March 3, 2019 (Reuters/NNN) FC Barcelona has reached a deal with Sergi Samper to end the midfielder’s contract, the La Liga leaders said on Monday.
The 24-year-old was once considered the successor to Sergio Busquets after progressing from Barcelona’s famed football academy.
But several injuries have proved a setback, disrupting loan spells at Granada and Las Palmas.
“The club would like to thank Sergi Samper for his dedication and commitment during his time at FC Barcelona and wishes him all the best for the future,” it said in a statement.
