Belgian Pro League side KAS Eupen have officially sold Senegal international Moussa Wague to Spanish side FC Barcelona B.

The 19-year-old full-back has joined the Segunda Division B side on a long-term deal after paying €5 million ($5,8 million) for his services.

Wague, who played for Senegal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, has a release clause of €100 million ($155,995 million) on his contract with Barcelona.

Barcelona confirmed Wague's arrival on their official website:

A club statement read: "Moussa Wagué is now officially a FC Barcelona player. After signing his contract in the presence of Director Silvio Elias, the 19-year-old Senegalese side has committed to five seasons with the Club. Its transfer amounts to 5 million euros, paid to KAS Eupen, and its release clause is 100 million euros."

"In two seasons in the first team of KAS Eupen (2016/17 and 2017/18), the Senegalese played 23 matches in the Belgian league and 3 in the Belgian Cup. He also played 17 UEFA Europa League play-off matches. Before arriving in Belgium, Wagué was trained at the Aspire Academy."

"He made a name for himself at the 2018 World Cup with Senegal, where he was a two-time regular and played 15 minutes of the third match. He notably scored against Japan, becoming the youngest African to score in the World Cup (only 19 years, 8 months and 20 days)."
