Check Out “Barcelona re-signed Oriol Romeu from Chelsea and Southampton.” In addition, the Calatan club has included a startling release clause worth €400million (about £347m) into his contract.

Romeu, now 31, is a product of the illustrious youth program at Barcelona but played just once in the league for the Spanish giants before signing for Chelsea in 2011.

Now, twelve years later, Barcelona has announced the midfielder’s return to the Nou Camp on a three-year agreement after spending one season with fellow LaLiga side Girona. This comes after the player spent the previous season with Girona.

Romeu, who was born in Catalonia, spent some time in the academy of Espanyol prior to joining the youth team of Barcelona, where he was granted his professional debut by Pep Guardiola in 2011.

But it was with Southampton where he established himself as a regular in the Premier League, making 256 games during a seven-year spell at the St. Mary’s Stadium until he left in 2022. This was followed by a transfer to Chelsea a few months later.

Romeu, who was a mainstay for Girona throughout the previous campaign, will now play for Barcelona, where he will be reunited with his former teammate Xavi.
