Lucas Digne joins Barcelona from PSG


Paris (AFP) – France international defender Lucas Digne has joined Barcelona on a five-year deal from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain, the Catalan club said on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old left back spent last season on a successful loan deal at Serie A’s Roma and had been expected to move there permanently. 

But Barcelona have sealed the stylish Lille-trained player’s services in a deal worth 16.5 million euros ($18.26M) with a potential four million add on.

“His pace on the left makes him a threat going forward as does his excellent technical quality on the ball,” Barca said in a press release.

Digne, whose buy-out clause is 60 million euros, was part of Didier Deschamps’ 23-strong France squad for Euro 2016, but didn’t play a single minute, with the experienced Patrice Evra preferred in the starting XI.

Digne will arrive in Barcelona on Thursday to undergo a medical and sign his contract.
