A young 20-year-old Moroccan nugget, central defender Chadi Riad had shone with FC Barcelona’s Masia, but also at the U23 African Cup where he was crowned champion with the Atlas Lions. But little used by Xavi Hernandez, he decided to sign up with Real Betis Balompié in order to gain playing time.

Author of 15 matches played this season with the Andalusian club, Chadi Riad (20 years old) could completely return to FC Barcelona. According to information from Sport, the Blaugrana club would have decided to recover the young defender, by activating his buyout option of 7 million euros. The Andalusian club and the player have already been informed of the decision, which could become official very soon. Barça will thus keep one of the most promising central defenders, since his return date is already scheduled for next summer.
