Barcelona have a new centre-back. Samuel Umtiti will sign for the Catalan club in a five-year deal. Catalunya Radio reported the news this Friday night. Barcelona would pay 30 million euros to Olympique Lyon for the 22 year old defender.

The deal will be announced and official after the Euros 2016, so we may need to wait a few weeks to see Umtiti signing his new contract.

Barcelona needed at least one defender after Marc Bartra's departure to Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer.
