Barcelona have secured the signing of 18-year-old Uruguayan defender Santiago Bueno. The cost of the transfer will be €1 million, plus variables if the player continues to progress.

Bueno will join Barcelona once he finishes the South American Youth Championship in Ecuador.

He did not feature regularly for the first team at CA Peñarol, therefore this is a signing entirely for the future.
