Victor Sanchez has been released by Barcelona by mutual consent.

The 23-year-old played 14 first-team games between 2007-09 with Barca before being sent out on loan for the last two campaigns, first with Xerez and then last season with Getafe.

Barca have retained the right to buy back Sanchez until the 2012 winter transfer market, as well as a percentage of any further transfer payment.
