It’s been a summer of defensive transfers as FC Barcelona are on the brink of a third signing in the form of Paris Saint-Germain full-back Lucas Digne.
Barca boss Luis Enrique has aimed at strengthening the shaky back-line that often came under the cosh in the 2015/16 campaign. He started off by bringing back Denis Suarez from Sevilla, and then roped in Samuel Umtiti, who is touted as one of the hottest young prospects in French football. By the looks of things, Enrique has reportedly signed another defender in the form of PSG’s Lucas Digne.
Here’s how the Culés reacted to the signings:
Hope Lucas Digne to Barcelona is true..top lad. #fcb

We got Lucas Digne! I honestly haven’t seen him play. All I know is that he’s in Roma and France NT. I hope he’s good.

Lucas Digne’s move to Barcelona came as a surprise to me

While there were a few who weren’t overly pleased with the Frenchman’s imminent arrival:
Lucas Digne to Barcelona? Lord, No! That boy needs to play regularly and I doubt he’ll do that with Jordi Alba still there.
— Ivan Dougan (@ivanlotti) July 12, 2016
@ItsCapoMadness yeah lucas digne damn he wack. Barca doesnt wanna win this year. Their recruiters are not good enough
— LE CID (@gamebreaker1) July 12, 2016
Barca signing Lucas Digne? Shocking! That’s a terrible signing.

Lucas Digne will have a tough time displacing Jordi Alba. Odd move for someone wanting first-team football
— Madridista Layne (@madridboss_24) July 12, 2016
Lucas Digne is the first player I’ll watch on youtube and still appears average.
— Samuel (@SegunFCB) July 12, 2016
I hope Lucas Digne knows that he has to play second fiddle to Jordi Alba🙁
