Paco Alcacer has informed Valencia that he wants to join Barcelona, reports Marca.
The striker told Valencia president Layhoon Chan of his desire to move to Barca on Wednesday afternoon and the Mestalla club will now look to strike a deal with the La Liga champions.
Alcacer, 22, is expected to sign a five-year deal at Barca, who will have to pay around 30 million euros to secure his services.
The whole transfer saga seems to be affecting the Spanish striker
Until now it was normal for the 22-year-old to leave the Ciutat Deportiva Valencia after training and stop to greet supporters who had waited patiently in the car park to meet their heroes, signing autographs and even talking for brief moments – this time, however, was different.
Alcacer got in his car and left the premises at full speed and gave no attention to the fans who were there to ask him not to leave the club.
