crazy ball – Barcelona have confirmed that Oscar Mingueza will be released this summer. The defender will continue his career in La Liga and join Celta Vigo.
The 23-year-old footballer rose to the top of Barcelona’s first team under Ronald Koeman. The Dutch tactician prefers to give him the opportunity to play minutes than other defenders.
But the change of coach from Koeman to Xavi Hernandez saw him immediately ignored. The legend of the giant Spanish League football has his own reasons for playing Ronald Araujo in the first team as Oscar Mingueza.
Minutes played a bit to make the future of Mingueza at the Camp Nou unclear. From the news doing the rounds, the Barca academy dropout is on the sale list, but the defender is still in demand by a number of La Liga clubs. One of them is Celta Vigo.
Reported by sportsmax, Barcelona released Oscar Mingueza to Celta Vigo pending medical and personal terms. The duration of the contract is 4 years. This means that he will be at the Estadio de Balaidos until June 2026. To get him from the Catalan football club, Celta Vigo only needs to spend 5 million euros or the equivalent of Rp 75 billion.
If the player stays at Barcelona, he will also find it difficult to play regularly in the first team of the Spanish giants. The reason is that the Blaugrana also brought in Jules Kunde and Andreas Christensen.
As a result, Celta Vigo became a good solution for Oscar Mingueza’s football career. With Barca, he played in 66 games, plus scored 2 goals and recorded 5 assists in all competitions. With the departure of the Spaniard, the Blugrana must now release Samuel Umtiti from Camp Nou.
