Barcelona have announced the signing of Andreas Christensen on a free transfer.
The Dane decided against renewing his deal with Chelsea and instead opted to move to the Catalans.
Christensen signs with Bacelona until 2026 and his release clause has been set at 500 million euros, whole his official presentation will take place on Thursday, July 7.
This is a strategic signing for the club, as they are particularly looking to reinforce their defence. The backline was a weak point for the Blaugrana last season.
Individual errors and injuries seriously hampered the side at various points of the campaign.
Despite the club’s financial problems, Barcelona are moving forward in the transfer window, identifying players who can cover their weaknesses without spending big.
