He has a buyout clause of £75million but the Spaniards are set to accept a cash offer for their young star.

Soler insisted this season: “That’s something that’s done by the club, by agents.

“When I go out on the pitch to play, I’m not thinking: ‘wow, I’ve got a really high buy-out clause and I’ve got a lot of responsibility on my shoulders.'”
