Barça: Hellas Verona snap up Seung-Woo

Claudio Chaves

Barcelona’s youth has been fleeing the club for the past couple of years. With earlier in the transfer window, Jordi Mboula leaving the club for Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco, and Marlon recently being loaned to OGC Nice on a two-year deal, Barça seems to have lost yet another youngster. Though this time, the departure is a permanent one.

Recently promoted to the Serie A, Hellas Verona have recorded the signing of Lee Seung-Woo (touted ‘the Korean Messi’), Barcelona’s young left winger, on a €1.5million deal with buy-back clause. Seung-Woo has not received much playing time at Barcelona, and the 19 year-old is not befitting of Ernesto Valverde’s plans. The left winger is expected to make his debut in the next Serie A fixture of the club, against Fiorentina.
