Barcelona has confirmed the somewhat surprising transfer of Kevin-Prince Boateng from Sassuolo.
The transfer includes an €8 million option to buy, while Barca will pay a €2m loan fee for Boateng to feature for them the remainder of the season.
A statement on the club’s official website reads: “Kevin-Prince Boateng is a player who will surely adapt quickly to the team. With the experience of playing in four of the biggest leagues in Europe, the Premier League, the Bundesliga, Serie A, and La Liga, he is a man who has scored goals wherever he has been.”
Before the Blaugrana’s confirmation, Boateng himself had announced the deal in an interview with Sky Sports.
“Barca, I’m coming!” he said. ” I’m sad to leave Sassuolo but this is a great chance.”
