Sevilla FC and FC Barcelona have reached an agreement in principle for the transfer of Spanish forward Munir El Haddadi.

Once Munir passes his medical, he will put pen to paper on a permanent deal to join Sevilla from Barcelona, the club announced on their official website.

Munir started making his mark at the age of 18 when he became the top goalscorer in the UEFA Youth League season of 13/14.

Zidane says Madrid is still the biggest team in Spain

The manager believes that the 33 titles Los Blancos have won in the Spanish La Liga history speak for themselves.

The 14/15 campaign was his breakout season as he scored four goals in 17 matches with Barcelona’s B team, and also made his debut for the first team.

The 23-year-old made 16 appearances for the first team that season, ten in La Liga, three in the Champions League and three in the Copa del Rey.

The following season, he featured 22 times for Barcelona despite stiff competition at Nou Camp, before he was shipped out on loan to Valencia.

At the Mestalla, he scored six goals and provided six assists in 34 La Liga appearances. The forward loaned out against last season, and this time to Deportivo Alavés where he scored 14 goals and provided seven assists in 37 appearances.

With first-team opportunities hard to come by at Barcelona, he has decided to make the switch to Sevilla.
