KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG has shot down suggestions he could join Barcelona permanently by confirming his exit on social media.

The 32-year-old made four appearances for the Spanish champions during his spell on loan from Sassuolo during the second half of last season.

Despite Boateng’s limited game time, Sassuolo’s chief executive officer Giovanni Carnevali suggested the former Ghana forward may stay at Camp Nou on a full-time basis.

He told Gazzetta: “I think Barcelona will buy Kevin-Prince Boateng, then he will be loaned to another LaLiga team.”

Barcelona have the option to buy Boateng outright, but that looks unlikely to happen as he has said his goodbyes to the club on his Instagram page.

Today ends one of the most exciting experiences of my career,” he said. “I thank every person who made this possible.

“I thank my teammates who made me feel at home from day one, champions and great people.

Barcelona are the 10th club Boateng has represented during his career, and the second in La Liga following his stint with Las Palmas in 2016-17.

With Sassuolo not expecting to see the experienced frontman again, it could be that another move is imminent.

Boateng has time on his side in the summer transfer window, with it likely that interest will be shown from somewhere.

If no suitable option can be found, then he will be forced to head back to Italy.

As things stand, he is tied to a contract with Sassuolo through to the end of the 2021-21 campaign.
