Barcelona have signed Sevilla centre-back Clement Lenglet for 32m pounds on a 5-year contract after the club met his release clause.
The 23-year-old had long been linked with a move to a bigger club after impressive performances with Sevilla whom he joined from French side Nancy in January 2017, and scored 4 goals in 52 games last season.
Lenglet, who has been capped at all levels of youth football for France but missed out on Didier Deschamps World Cup squad, now has a 265m pounds release clause in his Barcelona contract.
Barcelona describe Lenglet as “one of the most promising defenders on the planet.”
Lenglet started in both Champions League last-16 ties against Man United last season, as Sevilla reached the quarter-finals.
Barcelona say he “completes a spectacular defence” alongside fellow centre-backs Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen.
