Kevin-Prince Boateng is heading back to Sassuolo after Barcelona failed to activate their option to buy after a six-month loan.
The Ghanaian forward joined the La Liga side from US Sssuolo on a six-month loan deal but he consistently struggled with match fitness.
Boateng ended up only playing a total of 123 minutes of football in the just ended season in the La Liga.
The 32-year-old had made a big impact in Serie A with five goals and an assist in 15 competitive games for US Sassuolo.
He should be returning to the Mapei Stadium, as the Spanish giants wonâ€™t activate their â‚¬8m option to buy.
The next move could be to stay at Sassuolo with Coach Roberto De Zerbi or seek a transfer elsewhere.
Princeâ€™s previous clubs include Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund, Genoa, Milan, Eintracht Frankfurt and Las Palmas.
