Barça B - Official: Jonathan Soriano (Albacete)

Barcelona has today officially announced the transfer of Albacete forward Jonathan Soriano (23), who will play with Barcelona Atlètic in the third division next season.

Soriano, who passed the medical tests earlier today, signed a one-year deal. Spanish news agency EFE claims that a second optional year depends on games played and goals scored and that his contract will be automatically renewed if the player would be promoted to the first team.

The Catalan striker, whose contract with Albacete expired last month, came through the youth ranks of Espanyol Barcelona and was definitely promoted the club's first team two years ago (read more here). In January, he joined Spanish second division club Albacete on a free transfer.

Soriano is, after winger Edu Oriol, midfielder Luque, central defender Armando, central defender Iván and right back defender Sobregrau, the sixth signing of Barcelona Atlètic this summer.

After the media reports Barca B is interested in anyone, it becomes official in a few houres. I wish it was that easy for FC Barca!

There are some exceptions (that Elvis guy from Ceuta), but it's indeed striking that they are often correct. On the other hand: they only know about things at the very last minute, if the deal seems already closed. I actually think it might be the club leaking stories to keep the papers happy.
