Sevilla's French centre back, Clement Lenglet, has signed for Barcelona. Lenglet has deposited his buyout clause with Sevilla and from this moment onwards is a Barcelona player. This was the last action needed for him to get out of his contract with Sevilla and complete his dream of joining Barça.
Lenglet, via his representatives, paid the €35m buyout clause - plus VAT - with the league and, as such, freed himself to sign for Barcelona.
Barcelona, as reported first by SPORT, told LaLiga of their intention to pay the player's buyout clause. Lenglet has now left Sevilla's training camp in Benidorm after saying his goodbyes to the coach and teammates.
Lenglet signs a five year deal which runs until 30th June 2023 and his new buyout clause stands at €300m.
Lenglet is expected to arrive in Barcelona later today before being officially presented tomorrow.
