Barca sell midfielder Denis Suarez to Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo have completed the signing of midfielder Denis Suarez from Barcelona, the two clubs confirmed on Sunday.

Denis, 25, will join Celta for an initial fee of €12.9 million, with another €3.1m potentially due in add ons. He will sign a four-year deal with his hometown club, who he left eight years ago to sign for Manchester City.

The sale of Denis completes a busy week for Barcelona. They have also sold Marc Cardona, Andre Gomes and Jasper Cillessen to Osasuna, Everton and Valencia, respectively. Goalkeeper Neto also arrived from Valencia for €26m.

In total, for the four players sold, they have brought in almost €75m, surpassing the €60m ESPN FC revealed the club needed to bring in before June 30 to balance their accounts for the 2018-19 season.

Denis came through the youth academy at Celta before joining Man City in 2011. He left the English club for Barcelona in 2013.

After a season with Barca's B team and another year on loan at Sevilla, the former Spain U21 international joined Villarreal on a permanent deal. Less than a year later, though, his performances for the Yellow Submarine prompted Barca to exercise their right to re-sign him.

However, he has failed to secure regular first team football over the last three seasons at Camp Nou and a loan spell at Arsenal earlier this year was ended prematurely due to injury.

Denis revealed earlier this summer that he planned to leave Barca and that, despite foreign interest, his desire was to remain in Spain. He would have preferred a club competing in European competition -- and there was interest from Valencia -- but has finally opted for a return home to Galicia.
