Oriol Romeu returns to Barcelona with contract until 2026 from Girona

Barcelona have completed the transfer of Oriol Romeu from fellow Spanish side Girona. The Barca academy graduate has returned to the club and will be featuring in the first team this season. He has signed a contract until June 2026 and has joined training with the first team.

A number of defensive midfielders were linked with Barcelona as the replacement for Busquets. Names like Ruben Neves of Wolves (now Al Hilal) and Martin Zubimendi of Real Sociedad were rumoured as potential options for months, but no deal materialised out of their interest.
