Usman Muhammed move to Barcelona is officially on following the expiration of his contract with Uniao Madeira of Portugal on the 30th of June.
The midfielder is already in Spain waiting to be unveiled by the La Liga giants after impressing the handlers of the B team during a short trial last season.
Usman represented Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics where Nigeria won bronze, thanks to his midfield combo with captain John Obi Mikel in almost all of Nigeria’s game at the Olympics.
He will start off with the B team who are now going to campaign in the second division after securing promotion via the play offs at the end of last season.
His coming will make it the second time in six months a Nigerian player is joining the Catalans although Ezekiel Bassey who joined on loan from Enyimba has been told he won’t be offered fresh terms.
As exclusively reported by this portal the striker has even started moves to leave the club as he is expected to arrive Turkey in the coming days to hold talks with Osmanlispor.
