The transfer of Alexander Bernabei from Lanus to Celtic is reportedly about to be completed.
According to Argentine journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, the player is arriving in Scotland this week to finally join Ange Postecoglou’s side.
It’s claimed that once the medicals in Glasgow are done, then the fullback is set to sign a five-year deal with Celtic.
Confirming previous reports, he once again states the Celtic Park residents are buying 90% of the player, giving Lanus 10% of a future move.

Bernabei’s move to Celtic had been no secret, as besides the many reports about the advanced negotiations in the past few days, he’s also been filmed at Lanus’ dressing room saying farewell to his teammates and club staff.
With most of the Argentine press getting claims from the English media, Cesar Luis Merlo continues to be one of the only bringing his own information on this case.
Still, once again, he doesn’t say how much the Hoops are spending on the player, who’s valued by Transfermarkt at €3m.
