De Telegraaf reveals that, although the Netherlands Under-19 international is to start off his Camp Nou career in the club's second team, Barça B, the Spanish champions plan to include him on the senior squad's pre-season tour to Japan.

The report adds that Barça are to hand a five-year contract to Reis, who has established himself as a key figure in Groningen's midfield since his first-team debut in 2017, and has this term scored once and supplied one assist in 27 league games.
