There are still some conditions to negotiate with Borussia Dortmund about Marc Bartra's departure, but Barcelona already know that the Catalan centre-back will play in the Bundesliga next season.

Barcelona have reacted quickly and according to Mundo Deportivo, the chosen one is Samuel Umtiti. Olympique Lyon's defender would sign a five year contract with the club. Umtiti, 22, can play as a centre-back or left-back (he is left footed).

Other names like Stones, Laporte or Marquinhos were too expensive for Barcelona's current economical situation. Umtiti is a young prospect that the club have been following during the past few months.
