The prospect has become reality. As SPORT exclusively announced a few days ago, Barcelona were interested in Jean-Clair Todibo and today it became official. The club have tied up the 19 year old centre-back, one of the most promising players in French football, who has been kept apart from his team, Toulouse, because he didn’t sign a contract renewal.
Despite his age he is a leader with a lot of power and height - at 1.89m - with good anticipation, powerful aerial play and a lot of room to improve too.
Todibo has played 10 games this season in which he scored one goal, from a corner. But his evolution was halted after he did not sign on.
After receiving various offers - his contract expires in the summer of 2019 - he agreed to join Barcelona. He will sign on from July 1. The idea is that he goes on loan before then but it is not yet agreed where.
