'Mundo Deportivo' and transfer market expert journalist Fabrizio Romano agree in reporting that Barcelona youth academy product Marc Guiu will leave Barcelona to sign for Chelsea.

In mid-October last year, Marc Guiu was the name of the moment in the Spanish press. Xavi Hernandez gave him his debut with Barcelona's first team in a match against Athletic in the 10th round of La Liga. The young academy player scored the winning goal a minute after coming off the bench and was, for several weeks, the subject of newspaper reports and praise from his teammates and coaches .
However, it is unlikely that he will be given a chance in the coming season. Robert Lewandowski will be Hansi Flick's main asset up front, and that is why the gem has given the go-ahead to an agreement with Chelsea for his signing. It has already been leaked by both 'Mundo Deportivo' and journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is an expert in such matters. The Blues will pay his termination clause.
The sum amounts to 6 million euros, a very low figure considering the future projection of the 'Cule', but understandable in view of the fact that he has only 12 months left on his contract at the club. The newspaper mentioned in the previous paragraph, in fact, points out that the Barca board had in its plans to put on the table a renewal that, now, is far from his professional horizon.
Marc Guiu, on Sunday afternoon, was defeated by Cordoba in the final of the promotion to the Second Division that he played with Barca's reserve team, so that next season was not particularly flattering for him. He was going to have to continue in the Spanish third tier waiting for a space in the senior squad practically non-existent. Now, he faces an exciting debut in the Premier League.
