The report claims Barça will pay Ajax an initial 20 million euros, with another five million due in possible add ons. The announcement is a matter of days away. The two clubs just need to agree on how the payment will be structured. 

If confirmed, Barça will beat Bayern Munich to the signing of one of Europe's most coveted youngsters. Bayern have had a number of bids rejected by Ajax, while the sale of Nelson Semedo to Wolves allowed Barça to beat them to the signing. 

The signing of Dest will excite Barça fans because of his age and his potential. After the departure of Semedo, Dest will compete with Sergi Roberto for the right-back role at Camp Nou.
