Barcelona's move for Jean-Clair Todibo has not gone down well with Toulouse, his current club. Barça confirmed on Tuesday that they've agreed a pre-contract for the young defender to join them in the summer when his contract expires. Todibo joins for free. Barça will only have to pay his formation rights (around 400,000 euros).
Barça's move for the centre-back has angered Toulouse president Olivier Sadran, who has called the Catalan club "arrogant" in an interview with L'Equipe.
"The player has been poorly advised," Sadran said. "And Barca also haven't lived up to what they should. From a big club, it's not very gracious, even if -- legally -- they had the right to do it.
"They haven't behaved like a big club. And also, it's extraordinary: they declare the player will be with them in July, but I don't know anyone who knows what will happen in six months.
"Life can spring surprises on you, even the most uncomfortable ones. It shows their arrogance, it's to insult life to say what we will do."
