Barcelona confirmed on Thursday that they have brought forward Jean-Clair Todibo’s move from Toulouse and the defender will join the club with “immediate effect.”
The Spanish champions had initially agreed a deal for the youngster to move to the Camp Nou in the summer, but he’ll now be official unveiled at the club on Friday.

Todibo has been handed the No. 6 shirt at Barcelona and will sign a deal through to the end of the 2022/23 season.
The move makes sense for all parties as Todibo has been frozen out at Toulouse and was expected to spend the remainder of the season on the bench.
