DONE DEAL? Barcelona to make Real Betis fullback Emerson first summer signing

Barcelona will sign Real Betis fullback Emerson Royal this summer.

Cadena SER says Emerson will be the club's first signing.

Barça signed the Brazilian right-back in 2019 and loaned him to Real Betis. If they want to obtain 100 percent of his rights, they will have to pay €9 million to Betis or try and include another player in the operation. Juan Miranda has spent the season on loan at Betis, where they've been happy with him, and could feature in a possible deal.

According to the cited media, Emerson will do preseason with Barça, who have been impressed by his progress since arriving in Spain and feel he could add a lot to the current squad. The player already has a house in Barcelona and feels more than ready to take the next step in his career and to compete for a place at Camp Nou.

In principle, he will take part in the Olympics with Brazil in Japan before joining Barça. He could also feature in the Copa America, although the normal scenario is that players choose one or the other.
