The 22-year-old had a long-term contract at the Camp Nou through to the summer of 2025 but this has now been mutually terminated and he will become a free agent.

His sole performance for the Blaugrana came in a Champions League qualifier at Dynamo Kiev – and he has not played at all this calendar year.
Fernandes only joined Palmeiras in 2019 in a €3.5m deal from Botafogo but was unable to help prevent the Brazilian club’s first ever relegation from the top division in his sole campaign.
The central midfielder featured in a total of 31 matchday squads – which were enlarged to 23 players due to the pandemic – but was used just once.
