Barcelona announced on Wednesday afternoon that they have signed defender Lucas Digne from Roma. The 22-year-old is the third reinforcement of the summer, after recent arrivals Denis Suárez and Samuel Umtiti. The French left-back will undergo a medical revision first thing on Thursday and will be officially presented at Camp Nou at 11:30 before holding a photoshoot, then his first meeting with the press (it will be Samuel Umtiti's turn to be unveiled on Friday).
Barcelona and PSG completed the operation for Digne in relatively quick time. The full-back will sign a five-year contract with the Blaugranas, who in turn will pay PSG 16,5 million euros plus a further four million in add-ons. Barça had been monitoring the player for a while and now, with other target Raphael Guerreiro off to Borussia Dortmund (he couldn't see himself getting regular playing time at Camp Nou) the doors weer opened for Digne who signed for PSG three seasons ago but spent last term on loan at Roma.
