Fourth in La Liga as mid-season approaches, FC Barcelona has identified a real weak point: its defense.
To resolve the problem, the Blaugrana club sings the question of pearls to the Masia – Chadi Riad – to Betis Sevilla with the possibility of discussing during the season.
The 20-year-old Moroccan international hopeful shines in the Andalusian defense and could be a low-cost solution to strengthen Xavi’s squad.
Barcelona want to trigger a 7 million euro buyout clause for Chadi Riad, as requested in the first place @Sports.
This officially cannot happen now, but only at the end of the season, once Real Betis buy him – Barca will then activate the buyout clause.
Betis also includes a 50% resale clause. pic.twitter.com/bYPpLVYLhK

To terminate this loan with purchase option, Barça will still have to pay the amount of the clause provided for this purpose, namely 7 million euros. However, it will be necessary to wait until the end of the current financial year to conclude such an agreement.
