Yay! New bees to obsess over.

Well we may have not gotten him in the winter transfer window but Mikel Merino has signed a contract with BVB starting on July 1st until 2021. Merino is a central midfielder who can play from box-to-box with ease. At only 19-years-old, he has bucket loads of potential. He currently plays for CA Osasuna and will finish out his contract there for the rest of the season. He has played 22 games with the second division Spanish side and has been an important piece of their midfield all season. The 19-year-old was also on the Spanish U-19 National Squad that won the U-19 Euros last summer. With our current lack of depth it's nice that we know we have a solid player coming in the summer to bolster our squad, especially if we are going to sell any of our current players this season. Welcome to the squad Mikel Merino!!!
