BY foxsports • July 16, 2010

Sevilla's Adriano is on the verge of moving to Barcelona, according to the Andalusian club's president.

Sevilla quoted president Jose Maria del Nido on its website Friday as saying that a deal is ''practically'' done. He said the move will cost Barcelona up to €13.5 million ($17.5 million).

Del Nido said Sevilla agreed to sell the Brazilian because of the amount offered and the fact the player wanted to leave.

Adriano plays in defense and midfield.
