UD Las Palmas and FC Barcelona finalize the sale of Alberto Moleiro, operation that could be given official next week. President
Miguel Ángel Ramírez and Luis Helguera have traveled to Barcelona to close the transfer. That is, at least, the intention of both entities, which have been approaching positions in recent weeks. Some steps that are being directly carried out by the president Miguel Ángel Ramírez, and Mateu Alemany, who plays the role of director of football at the Barça club.

The terms of the contract are very similar to those of Pedri: an initial amount at the signing -a figure still to be specified-, 15% on the capital gain of a future sale, in addition to other variables depending on the objectives that the player is fulfilling.

FC Barcelona has been insisting for quite some time on taking over the Serbs of the Canarian pearl, once you have deactivated the economic levers -assets- that are unblocking your delicate financial situation. Barça's offices work tirelessly to carry out a second economic movement in the second half of July that will allow the signing of Alberto Moleiro, a footballer who
He already has the approval of coach Xavi Hernández.

Calculated maneuver

This newspaper had already advanced in its edition of July 6, that the renewal of Moleiro did not alter Barcelona's plans and that its purpose of signing the young player from Tenerife had no going back.
The extension of the contract until June 2026 that UD Las Palmas made official fell within the parameters of the negotiation. Three more were added to the remaining year of his contract, plus a token that made him the best-paid youth squad player, and his clause went from 10 to 30 million.

Although at some point there was some tension between Las Palmas and the footballer, intermediaries and Barcelona itself, cordiality and the spirit of reaching the best agreement for everyone always prevailed, because those involved were convinced that the agreement would come.

Moleiro always made it clear that the first option was to continue wearing the yellow shirt, but that he would never close the doors to a premature transfer that would also help relieve the coffers of UD Las Palmas.

Moleiro's transfer operation is similar to the one that both clubs already signed in 2019 with the sale of Pedri.
Barcelona was now unwilling to give up the footballer. This was the point of greatest disagreement, but it could be decided in favor of the yellows, who hope to enjoy another year of the young promise.

A very long career that FC Barcelona has beaten economically powerful teams in European football. AND
It is true that Villarreal was the first to put 15 million on the table, that the Canarian club understood at that time that they were insufficient. Nor was the payment formula (three installments) seductive. Later appeared the
Manchester City, whose intention was to buy it and transfer it to one of its mother teams, the recently promoted to First Division, Girona, so that it could continue training there.

During this time Borussia Dortmund in Germany, and Milan in Italy were also pending in case Barcelona left the bid. It didn't happen.

In the negotiation there are already quite a few things in progress, as sources consulted indicate that the player and Barcelona have already agreed on the contract.
Moreover, it was Barça's intention to include him on the list of travelers for the tour to the United States that begins on July 13.
