The club published a video of him arriving at the club’s offices, before the official media duties begin tomorrow. At 12:00 CEST, Christensen will undergo the symbolic signing of his contract with President Joan Laporta, before a press conference takes place.
The official Barcelona account also covered his first words as a cule.
“Good evening Cules, I’ve just arrived in Barcelona. I can’t wait to see you. Forca Barca,” Christensen added.

Laporta first confirmed Christensen’s signing on Saturday evening, but it had been a known secret for several months at this point.
The 26-year-old arrives on a free from Chelsea and poses some interesting questions about Barcelona’s tactical set-up for next season. Traditionally better as part of a back three, Christensen may well be a hint that Xavi Hernandez is intending on changing formation next season with the likes of Gerard Pique, Ronald Araujo, Eric Garcia and potentially further signings also pushing for a starting spot.
