Barcelona have confirmed their second sale of the summer - and it's to another Premier League side. After Gerard Deulofeu completed his move to Watford, it's now Lucas Digne who has joined Everton. The two clubs reached an agreement in the last couple of days and it could provide Barça with the ammunition to go out and secure one of their top transfer targets.
Digne has signed a five-year deal with Everton. The cost of the deal will be €20.2m, plus a further €1.5m in variables.
It was two years ago, in July 2016, when Digne signed for Barça in a €16.5m - plus €4m in variables - deal from PSG. His buyout clause was €60m, but with this sale the club should make their money back on the player.
the coach's opinion
Everton's manager, Marco Silva, said this about Digne: "Since I saw him the first time I saw that he wanted to play for Everton. Lucas is a player who will bring competitiveness in the right back position for us."
