Barcelona have signed Ukrainian international defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy for the next five seasons from Shakhtar Donetsk for 25 million euros, the reigning Spanish and European champions said Monday.

The 22-year-old will have a buy-out clause of 100 million euros (143 million dollars) in his contract, the club said in a statement posted on its website.

“I feel lucky to sign for Barca. I?m hoping to improve and form a part of this great team,” he told the club’s television station.

Chygrynskiy’s final game for the Ukrainian side was against Barcelona on Friday in the European Super Cup in Monaco, which the Catalan giants won 1-0 to pick up their second trophy of the season after winning the Spanish Super Cup last week.

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola had been keeping a close eye on the player as he bids to reinforce his squad before the transfer deadline on Monday.

“He knows how to play football, and we need to sign him,” he told Catalan television channel TV3 last week.

Barcelona became the first Spanish club to achieve the treble of the Spanish league, King’s Cup and Champions League titles last season.
