LaLiga greats FC Barcelona have announced the arrival of Emerson Royal from Real Betis.
The 22-year-old Brazilian right-back was signed on a pre-contract last season, before finishing the Covid-19 affected term at Betis.
Ahead of officially starting his career with the Catalan giants, Emerson passed his medical test on Monday before the official unveiling.
Emerson already has 73 LaLiga games under his belt, which includes four goals and 10 assists. The Brazilian will compete for the number two position with Sergiño Dest and Sergi Roberto.
Ronald Koeman's side, who lost out on the league title with seven points behind the champions Atletico Madrid last season, will start the new campaign at home to Real Sociedad.
