Barcelona Have a purchase option set at 20m euros
It may have taken until the last knockings of the summer transfer window, but Barcelona have finally found a destination for Jean-Clair Todibo, with the French defender leaving on a two-year loan to Benfica.
Benfica will pay an initial loan fee of two million euros, but they have the option to make the deal a permanent one for a fee of 20 million euros.
Todibo had no chance of getting first team minutes this season, despite Los Cules’ obvious issues at centre-back, and until late on Monday afternoon it looked as if he was headed to Fulham.
However, Benfica made a strong push for the defender who joined the Blaugrana in January 2019, but hasn’t developed as the club had hoped.
