In the last few minutes, reigning La Liga champions Barcelona have agreed a deal with MLS side LAFC to sign Mamadou Fall.
The highly-rated 20-year-old was being sought after by the Catalan giants and Villarreal, with whom the Senegalese center-back spent last season on loan.

According to The Athletic, the short-term deal for Fall will include an option to buy at the end of the season which could be a figure worth over $7m including add-ons.
The deal will need to be finalized by tomorrow night’s deadline but Barca bosses remain confident that time will not be an issue.
Fall’s outstanding performances in the MLS have earned him his move to one of the biggest clubs in the world. He has so far made 42 appearances for the MLS outfit, including three since returning from Villarreal this summer.
