The youngster who has decided that moving to London is the best choice for his career had this to say about his decision:

‘The day has come to say goodbye to what has been my home these last 7 years,’ Lopez told his followers on Instagram.

‘Thanks to Barcelona, it will be the club that I always carry in my heart for wonderful moments that I have lived with my friends, coaches, delegates, executives.

‘Magnificent people who have made me feel welcome from the first day.

‘It was a difficult decision but after contemplating it with my family I made the decision to go and start a new stage as a footballer with great enthusiasm.

‘Thanks to all who have been there always Visca Barca!’
