Jeison Murillo is the chosen centre-back and Barça will pay between one and two million for his loan from Valencia
Barça has made the decision to sign a new centre-back after Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen injuries. The club was searching an experimented right centre-back and the chosen one is Jeison Murillo, from Valencia.
Although FCBarcelona wanted to sign Andreas Christensen, Chelsea did not want to transfer him. The club's option has been a player that already knows LaLiga. Jeison Murillo has played in Granada and he has been in Valencia since 2017.
Barça is paying between one and two million for his loan until the end of the season. The club just assumes his wage. Then, the club can sign him for 25 million.
Murillo is 26 years old and has been Ernesto Valverde's option in order to help Gerard Piqué and Clément Lenglet after the injuries in the back line. He will sign his new contract for Barcelona in the following days.
