Barcelona have announced the signing of full-back Lucas Digne from Paris Saint-Germain for a fee which could rise to €20.5million.
The 22-year-old, who spent last season on loan with Roma, has agreed a five-year contract with the Liga champions, who have shelled out an initial €16.5m to secure his signature.
“Barcelona have reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to sign French player Lucas Digne for the next five seasons,” a Barca statement confirmed.
“Barca have paid an initial 16.5 million euros with another four possible according to individual and team results. Digne’s buy-out clause is 60 million euros.
“Lucas Digne will arrive in Barcelona today early in the morning local time to undergo a medical and sign his contract.”
Digne becomes the second defender to complete a move to Barca this week, following the confirmation of Samuel Umtiti’s €25m switch from Lyon.
He is expected to compete with Jordi Alba for the left-back spot, meaning Adriano is likely to depart Camp Nou, with Lazio having been linked with a bid.
