Official | Sporting Lisbon sign Jérémy Mathieu from FC Barcelona

Sporting Lisbon have agreed a deal to sign Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu from Barcelona on a two-year-deal.

The Frenchman recently had his contract terminated by the Catalan giants to save roughly around €2.5m in wages, leaving the door wide open for his move to the Liga Nos side.

Veteran Mathieu had his time at Barcelona hampered by injuries following successful spells in France with Toulouse and more famously with Valencia, where he would make a name for himself on the continent.

The 33-year-old is the second player to join Lisbon in as many days, joining Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao at the club.
