Barcelona player Riqui Puig will soon exit Camp Nou after nine years in Blaugrana to the US.

Reports according to Mundo Deportivo had it that the midfielder has reached a verbal agreement with LA Galaxy, where he will sign a three-year deal to move to Los Angeles. 

Barcelona will likely complete the deal on Tuesday. Football espana claimed that the Catalans will retain a percentage of any sale, but there will be no transfer fee.

Puig broke through into the Barcelona side chiefly under Quique Setien, adding a vivacity and energy to the team at that point. After the Cantabrian was removed, he was ostracised by Ronald Koeman for almost the entire season, who gave him little playing time.

When Xavi Hernandez came in and also preferred other midfielders, it became clear that Puig would struggle to win minutes in the first team. Puig will now try to find some continuity alongside the likes of Douglas Costa and Javier Hernandez at the Galaxy.
