Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday they have agreed a deal to sign Toulouse defender Jean-Clair Todibo.

The highly-rated 19-year-old will join the club on a free transfer on 1 July 2019 after his current contract with Toulouse expires.

Here’s what Barcelona have had to say about their new signing.

“Todibo is a tall, right-footed defender who can play at centre back and also in the centre of the midfield. At the youth level he often featured in the middle of the field given his ability on the ball.

“One of his best qualities is his physical presence and his ability in the air. At just 19 years of age, the young talent comes to FC Barcelona as one of the most promising players in European Football in his position.”

Recent reports have claimed that Todibo rejected interest from Manchester City and Juventus to join Barcelona.
