Setien happy for Junior Firpo over Barcelona move

Confirmed: Barcelona sign Junior Firpo from Real Betis

The Spain u21 global will sign a five-year deal with the LaLiga giants from fellow LaLiga outfit Real Betis.

The Catalan giants announced the signing of Real Betis left-back Junior Firpo earlier today and it was before the announcement that Bartomeu revealed how the club will go about with transfer-related activities in the coming weeks. The player will immediately be placed under the orders of coach Ernesto Valverde on Monday, when the Barca team leaves for the United States for a series of preparatory training matches. His release clause will be €200 million.

The 22-year-old will act as a backup to Jordi Alba, with the intention of eventually becoming the Spaniard's long-term replacement.

He now joins high profile signings including Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong as Barcelona continue their quest to win the Champions League in the new season. Matteo Darmian was also considered in case they couldn't sign any of their top targets. Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Junior moved to Málaga aged six.

He made 24 appearances in LaLiga last season and scored three times, including once in a 4-3 victory for Betis at Camp Nou in November. He was also part of the Spain U21 squad which won the European Championship in Italy last month.

Barca face Napoli in Miami on Wednesday and then again in MI on Saturday.
