Sergiño Dest was presented as a Barcelona player on Friday afternoon. The American international arrives on a five-year deal for €21 million plus €5 million in variables from Ajax and will have a release clause of €400 million.

Bayern Munich fought hard for the right-back’s signature, but in the end he decided to join the LaLiga club.

Bayern are a great side but I have followed my heart and that is why I signed for Barça. It’s important that Koeman is here because he is Dutch, but everyone has given me a warm welcome. Barça have so much history, I had always wanted to play here.
