Riqui Puig is set to sign a 3-1/2-year deal through the end of the 2025 MLS season.

Barcelona midfielder Ricky Puig has agreed to join Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy, both clubs said on Thursday.

The La Liga club will have the right to buy back the 22-year-old and is entitled to 50 percent of the player’s future sales. The transfer fee was not disclosed.

The LA Galaxy added that Puig will sign a 3-1/2-year contract until the end of the 2025 MLS season when his visa is granted.

“Ricky is a very technical and educated player with incredible experience for his age. He will fit seamlessly into our group and style of play,” said LA Galaxy coach Greg Vinny.

The Barcelona youth product, who made 57 appearances for the club and scored two goals, made his first-team debut in 2018.
