Trabzonspor agree deal with Real Betis to sign Marc Bartra

As broken by Samuel Silva, Real Betis and Trabzonspor have reached an agreement that will see Marc Bartra move to the Süper Lig.

Reports emerged earlier this week that the two sides were close to arriving at a deal and the 31-year-old will now travel to Turkey to complete his medical and sign his contract.

According to the agreement, Trabzonspor will pay €5 million to Real Betis to secure the services of the centre-back. He will also earn a salary that is worth twice as much as what he earned in Seville.

Initially Bartra was not keen on leaving La Liga. However, the financial rewards offered by a move to Turkey appeared to be too difficult to turn down. The transfer will also benefit Real Betis, who have been trying to lower their wage bill.

Los Verdiblancos have been looking at ways to offload the centre-back who was struggling to get into the starting XI last season.
