At a price of $17 million, Perez has been sold to Roma and this amount includes all variable and no buy-back clause.

Barcelona manager Quique Setien also spoke about Carles Perez’s departure from the Catalan club.
“It was a shared decision. What I talked with him about was very clear. In the decisions made by the club, I gave my opinion. That’s it. Carles Pérez knows what I told him and also he is aware of the opinion of the club.”
When asked if anyone else would be leaving the Catalan club, Setien had an answer.
“Any more departures? I can’t guarantee anything. We’ll see, these are decisions the club takes but I think it’s clear that nobody leaves if they don’t want to leave.”
