Barça buy Pinto from Celta
FC Barcelona have exercised their right to buy José Manuel Pinto from Celta Vigo and informed the Galician club of their decision to make his move to Camp Nou longer on Friday.
The right to buy had to be exercised before May 31 and was agreed upon when the loan deal was
signed with Celta on January 17. Barça paid €500,000 for Pinto in the January transfer
The player will now sign a two-year contract with FC Barcelona, even though on June 30, 2009
either side can break it.
