Official: Cáceres To Barcelona

Villarreal have announced that they have agreed a fee with Barcelona for young central defender Martín Cáceres, who will sign his new contract with the Catalunya club imminently...

Villarreal announced via their official website that they have reached a 'principle of agreement' with Barcelona over the young Uruguayan, who is expected to agree personal terms with FCB this evening.

Barça report that the youngster, who spent last season on loan at Recreativo de Huelva, will transfer to Camp Nou for a total fee of around €16.5m. further claims that of this fee €10m will swell Villarreal's coffers, while the remaining €6.5m will be somehow divided between a group of agents, led by Daniel Fonseca, and Defensor Sporting of Montevideo, the 21-year-old's former club.

The player himself, who is jetting in to Barcelona to finalise matters, told Uruguayan media sources, "My agent told me that everything has been agreed with Barcelona.

"I thought I would sign for Real Madrid but Barça have come out suddenly. I'm excited, because its the best team of Spain. I didn't expect that my first season in Europe would be so good."

Barcelona's Report

Meanwhile, FC Barcelona clearly anticipate no problems in the actual signing process, with the penning of contracts a mere formality by this point.

To this end they have stated that the €16.5.m transfer will see Cáceres remain at Camp Nou for the next four seasons, while his minimum release clause will weigh in at €50m.
