Nico has finalised a loan move to Valencia for the whole season.
The Barcelona youngster will have a medical on Thursday and already bid goodbyes to the team.
According to reports, Miralem Pjanic has very impressive in the pre-season and has won a place in Xavi’s squad.
This made Nico reconsider his position at the Camp Nou as he wants to play regularly and a loan move to Valencia seems rightful for the youngster.
Nico said to Cope:“I am very happy and content to be here, I have been looking forward to coming here for a few days now and I am really keen to get started.”
“It’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you later. At my 20 years of age I need to and want to play more minutes to grow as a footballer, and for that reason I decided that the best thing for me was to do it at a different club this season. To the Cules, the team and the fans, I wish you all the luck in the world and I hope you can celebrate many titles. We will see each other in a year, Forca Barca!”
