The 22 years old Brazilian defender spent one-year on loan to Real Betis where he made a total of 74 La Liga appearances for the club, scoring four goals. The 6ft right back caught the eyes of many big clubs after a series of decent displays.
Reports had it that he was a major target for Arsenal as they see him as a perfect replacement for Hector Bellerin should he decide to leave the club this summer. Barcelona who is his parent club decided to activate his buy back clause and now, he is now a Barcelona player.
It is heartbreaking news for Arsenal fans who had hope that their club will sign Emerson Royal after reports linked the player with the club. From the little have seen him play, his major weakness is his discipline aside that, he is good in other aspect.
Good player and good signing for Barcelona.
