The Blaugrana have acquired the left-back’s services on a five-year deal for an initial fee of €16.5m, which could rise to €20.5m based on individual and team-based add-ons

Barcelona have completed the signing for Paris Saint-Germain defender Lucas Digne after the 22-year-old agreed a five-year deal at Camp Nou.

Digne has joined the Blaugrana for an initial fee of €16.5 million which could eventually rise to €20.5m based on individual and team-based add-ons.

The full-back becomes Barcelona’s second new arrival from Ligue 1 after Samuel Umtiti completed his switch from Lyon on Tuesday for €25 million.

“Barcelona have reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to sign French player Lucas Digne for the next five seasons,” a Barca statement confirmed.

“Barca have paid an initial 16.5 million euros with another four possible according to individual and team results. Digne’s buy-out clause is 60 million euros.

“Lucas Digne will arrive in Barcelona on Thursday early in the morning local time to undergo a medical and sign his contract.”

Barcelona have inserted a €60 million buyout clause in Digne’s contract, with the Meaux-born ace set to compete with Jordi Alba for the left-back spot in head coach Luis Enrique’s squad.
