He now heads back to Catalonia with his club future still uncertain.
Sporting Club de Portugal are rumoured to be still monitoring the 22-year-old with a view to bringing him back to his homeland in the coming weeks.
Barcelona are open to a two-year loan in Lisbon, but with a mandatory €20m transfer clause inserted into any potential deal.
A return to Portugal is the preferred option for the former Braga winger despite previous transfer interest from domestic rivals Sevilla.
