Barcelona Sign Dmitryo Chigrinskyi (spelling!!)

Barcelona have signed Ukrainian central defender Dmitryo Chigrinskyi (22) from Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk for a rather hefty fee of 25 million euros.

Pep Guardiola had insisted on the signing of Chigrinskiy, and had rejected many potential center back and full back options in favour of his man.

Chigrinskiy will, however, be ineligible to play in the Champions League this season because he has already played two unsuccessful qualifiers for Shakhtar Donetsk.
