and according to Barcelona’s announcement, they are willing to pay €8.5 million for him, which could increase as his as €15.5 million in variables.

Although Barcelona did not include a buy-back clause, they did retain a percentage of any future sale.

The French center-back joined Barcelona midway through the 2018/19 season from Toulouse, costing only €1 million. Todibo was not able to convince either Ernesto Valverde or Ronald Koeman. He then spent a lot of time on loan to Schalke and Benfica and neither of which were successful. He was able to make only eight appearances for Schalke and even did not get to make a single appearance for Benfica.

He then joined Nice on loan last winter and was able to make 15 appearances for them. He then became a key player and even was the captain of the side in a game against Strasbourg.

Nice welcomed the French center-back’s arrival by underlining his ability to bring the ball out from the back and lead the defense in their statement.
