Alcacer passes Barca medical

Paco Alcacer has passed his Barcelona medical ahead of completing a move from Valencia.

According to numerous Spanish media outlets, official confirmation that the €30m deal has gone through will come within a matter of hours.

The 22-year-old featured in Los Che’s opening day defeat by Las Palmas last week, but sat out Saturday’s loss to Eibar as he prepared to head to Camp Nou.

Barca have been looking for a back-up to forwards Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar throughout the summer and, following much speculation, have now finally landed their man.

Once Alcacer has resolved his future, he will join up with the Spanish national squad as they begin preparations for the friendly against Belgium and the World Cup qualifier with Liechtenstein.

Elsewhere, Valencia are waiting to discover whether they have secured the loan signing of Barcelona’s Munir El Haddadi. According to Marca, the 20-year-old faces a choice between the Mestalla and Celta Vigo.
