Barcelona have signed full-back Emerson in a €12 million (£10m/$14m) transfer from Atletico Mineiro, with the defender set to join the La Liga champions in the summer.
The 20-year-old Emerson will join Barca on a five-year contract that runs through the 2023-24 season when he officially links up with the club on July 1.
However, prior to his move to Barca, he will head to La Liga for the remainder of the campaign on a half-season loan to Real Betis, the Seville club have announced.
Emerson, who turned 20 on January 14, has played one season at Mineiro scoring a goal and adding an assist for the club in 23 appearances, who finished sixth in the top-flight in 2018.
