Speaking to Barca TV [as reported by AS], the club chief has confirmed that the Catalan giants opted against tying the forward down to a new deal.
Fernandez confirmed that 20-year-old Sandro would now be allowed to leave the club as a free agent., and thanked the youngster for sticking around for an extra season at the club having previously been allowed the chance to depart last term.
Amidst the club’s ban from registering players, the young forward was a talented commodity last summer, but he hasn’t truly managed to prove himself over the last 12 months, and with the club having passed the May 1 deadline to tie him down to a new deal, Sandro is off.
