Afellay has arrived

Ibrahim Afellay has arrived in Barcelona on Thursday to finalise the details of his signing for Barça. He posed for the typical photo in front of the club crest outside the offices and then attended a meeting to close negotiations.

At 11.50, Afellay and his representative touched down at El Prat airport. They were taken by coach straight to the FC Barcelona offices at the Camp Nou, where Afellay was able to marvel at a stadium he has never seen before.

First Barça pictures

Next came the photo in front of his new club’s crest. The winter window signing then spoke briefly to Barça TV before moving indoors for the all-important meeting.

More activity later
