The youth academy player has opted for more regular game time

Abde is next in line to leave Barça, after Nico's loan move to Valencia and Collado's to Elche. The winger will renew his contract until 2026 and in all likelihood will also leave for Valencia. Up to five Primera División teams had asked for the loan of the young player, so the youngster will decide his future depending on the sporting prospects.

Abde spoke to Xavi and it was clear to him that he would not have minutes with the number of wingers in the first team. Both he and Barça agreed that he could not play one more year in the reserve team as it would hinder his progression and so he put himself on the market. His only condition was that he wanted to choose his team, as he didn't wish to go abroad and wanted to play in Spain and adapt to La Liga.

Like Nico, he will first renew at Barça before leaving. As agreed, he will extend his contract for two more seasons so that Barça can be sure of his future. The loan will be without the option to buy.
