Barcelona have completed the signing of Sevilla's Clement Lenglet after the defender deposited his €35.9 million release clause with the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on Thursday.

The Catalan giants announced the signing on their website and revealed he will sign a five-year deal with a €300 million (£265 million) buyout clause. The deal with Barcelona also includes a €300m release clause.

"My aim is to win trophies and play as much as possible to develop as a footballer and enjoy the stadium".

The Rojiblancos were ultimately forced to back down as the centre-back failed to find an agreement over a new contract, though they were adamant that Barca would pay his release clause.

Lenglet, 23, joined Sevilla from French side Nancy in January 2017.

"With ten appearances for the French national team and a height of 186 cm (6 ft 1 in), Lenglet arrives at Barça after success in Seville, where led the defense with elegance and determination". He has, additionally, been capped at every level between U16 and U21.

It is believed that Lenglet is now in pre-season training with Pablo Machin's Sevilla, but will leave their camp and travel to Barca soon, where he will be presented as their new signing, according to Sport.
