Lucas Digne was presented as a new Barcelona today and the defender confirmed that it was a source of great pride to play for the Catalan giants.

The former Roma player appeared in front of the media with a large bandage on his nose and affirmed that it was a boyhood dream of his to play at Camp Nou for Barcelona.

Feelings: “Barça are the biggest club in the world and today is a wonderful day for me. When I was a kid I told my father that I'd like to play at Barcelona one day. To have completed the move is a source of great pride for me”.

Face mask: “I have two nasal fractures and in order to breathe more easily an operation was advised”.

Team mates: “It will be a huge source of motivation training with Messi and Neymar and I hope to learn much from them. My plan is to learn Spanish as soon as possible to help my integration”.

Style of play: “I do like to get forward and the Barça style of play will help my game".

Barça: “I was aware of interest from the club just before Euro 2016 and spoke to Mathieu and also to Umtiti as well as talking to club representatives”.

Alba: “He's a great modern player and I've seen him play many times. We all want to play in the first team but that will be a decision for the coach”.
