The 24-year-old signed a five-year deal on Friday after a 4million euros (£3.2m) move from Sao Paulo. The fee could rise to 5.5million euros (£4.4m) depending on the number of games he plays.

The deal was agreed earlier this week and, after passing a medical, Douglas was able to put pen to paper.

The Catalan club face a FIFA-imposed transfer embargo for the next two windows, which they are appealing at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but are allowed to bring players in this summer.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
