Carles Perez leaves Barcelona and flies to Rome on the first loan

Carles Perez has left Barcelona to make a first switch to Roma by the end of the season.

Roma will be required to make Perez’s transfer permanent for an initial term of 11 million euros, with an additional 4.5 million euros linked to performance clauses, if “certain sporting goals” are achieved.

If the Serie A giants are forced to make additional money, the 21-year-old winger, who fought under Ernesto Valverde and then under Quique Setien for a constant season in Barca, will sign a contract until June 2024.

“I know I’m leaving a great club like Barcelona, ​​but I’m joining another great club in Rome,” said Perez. “I’m very happy and can’t wait to train with my new teammates.”

Guido Fienga, Managing Director of Roma, said: “We are very happy with Carles’ arrival in Rome. Carles learned his craft at one of the best youth academies in Europe and played for a club with so much talent.

“We are all confident that he can immediately play an important role in our squad.”

Perez’s departure from Barca – who retains the right to refuse a possible future sale for the time being – does not necessarily mean that there will be newcomers to Camp Nou. Quique Setien said on Wednesday that he was satisfied with the squad available to him.

Roma also announced that Elche’s Gonzalo Villar would initially sign up for 4 million euros, with the midfielder putting a four and a half year contract on paper.

“My first impressions are great. I am a member of a huge club, one of the best in Italian football. I am very happy at the moment,” Villar told Roma TV.

“It will be a big challenge for me. I’m going to a new country, a beautiful country. I can’t wait to start with my teammates and show what I’m capable of.

“I spoke to the trainer [Paulo Fonseca]who told me the trust he has in me. He told me that he likes the way I play on the field but that I have to work hard to adapt to this new challenge.

“He made a strong impression and I am confident that he will be a great coach for me.”
