Barcelona are close to sealing the signing of Hugo Guillamon, a promising left footed centre-back, 20, who on Saturday made his Valencia debut against Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena.
The U19 Euros winner, he would arrive for free in the summer with his Valencia contract up. Guillamon is a player that Barca have followed for some time and they believe he can adapt to their style of play.
The idea is that he joins the B team with the idea of soon getting into the first team squad - with a long contract set to be offered.
Albert Celades used him against Chelsea in the Champions League and the Copa del Rey against Ebro. He came on at half-time for Eliaquim Mangala against Real Sociedad. Curiously, in his city of birth - San Sebastian.
