Official: Korean starlet leaves Barca

Serie A new boys Verona have officially signed South Korean forward Lee Seung-woo from Barcelona, but the Catalans retain a buyback option.

Mundo Deportivo explains Lee rejected offers from France, Netherlands and Belgium to join Verona, who made him “a better sporting and economic proposal”.

The 19-year-old has yet to feature in Barca’s first team and only broke into their ‘B’ outfit last season.

However, the Blaugrana can bring him back within the first two years of his spell in Italy.
