Barcelona sign Firpo from Real Betis on five-year contract

Transfer: Barcelona agree deal for €25million defender

Barcelona have announced an agreement has been reached with Real Betis for Junior Firpo on a deal worth an initial €18m, with the left back signing a five-year deal at the Catalan club.

Spanish champions Barcelona have added Junior Firpo to their list of new signings this summer. He joined Real Betis' academy in 2014 and made his first-team debut at the beginning of 2018.

In joining the champions, he becomes Barcelona's fifth signing of the summer alongside Antoine Girezmann, Frenkie de Jong, Neto and fellow full back Emerson.

Junior made the step up to the first team from the B team in the 2017-18 season when he ended playing the same number of games in each team: 14 matches, all of them as a starter.

Barça have paid an initial fee of 18 million euros for the Spain U21 global, who was born in the Dominican Republic, and could pay an additional 12 million in variables.

The 22-year-old is expected to under study Jordi Alba who clocked 30 last March, in Barcelona's left-back position.

The Dominican Republic-born defender has a massive €200m release clause in his contract at the Camp Nou.

Firpo played 24 times in La Liga last season, scoring three goals and grabbing four assists as Betis finished 10th.

Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Junior Firpo from Real Betis on Sunday.
