Basic terms settled for Pinto loan
RC Celta de Vigo and FC Barcelona have agreed the basic terms for the loan of goalkeeper José Manuel Pinto to the Catalan club until the end of the season.
The definitive agreement is pending a medical that the player will take tomorrow, and on the player
signing the contract.
The deal will cost 500,000 euros and ties José Manuel Pinto to the club for the rest of the
season, with the option to buy before May 31. If FC Barcelona decide to keep the player on a
permanent basis, there will be no additional transfer fee.
José Manuel Pinto will arrive in Barcelona tonight and will be available for photographs
outside the club offices this evening at 22.45. The goalkeeper will spend Friday taking a series of
medical tests and will be presented late in the afternoon in the club press rooms.
