FC Barcelona Reach Agreement With LaLiga Starlet?
Spanish giants FC Barcelona have reportedly reached an agreement to sign a surprise LaLiga midfielder.
According to Don Balon, the Catalan club are close to securing the signature of Real Betis starlet Fabian Ruiz.
The 21-year-old has been one of Betis' most consistent performers when he has played this season, and his displays have seemingly caught the eye of Barca.
It is believed that the Blaugrana see Ruiz as a long-term replacement for veteran midfielder Andres Iniesta, who is playing less football as he gets deeper into his thirties.
It has been claimed that the two clubs have reached an agreement in principle, with the player set remain at Betis for at least another season.
Barca's technical director Robert Fernandez is said to have been impressed with the young Spanish starlet, who has played 17 times for Betis so far in this this campaign.
