Barcelona reach deal with Toulouse to fast-track Jean-Clair Todibo deal

L’Équipe report that Toulouse have agreed a deal with Barcelona to release teenage central defender Jean-Clair Todibo to the Catalan giants 6 months than had previously been planned.

TFC had initially refused to engage with Barcelona on the grounds that they feel FCB are stealing their young talents, with Sporting Director Éric Abidal having convinced Todibo to snub a professional contract offer from Toulouse in favour of accepting one from the La Liga side. The fee agreement is believed to be worth between €2m to €3m.

Barcelona are so keen to get Todibo early because they are concerned with the player’s development at TFC over the course of the next 6 months – Toulouse continue to refuse to allow the player into their 1st team, banishing him to the U19s instead.
