It comes after significant reports broke in Argentina this afternoon, claiming that Celtic had reached a verbal agreement with Lanus for his transfer.
It’s said that the paperwork is now being finalised, with Lanus retaining a 10% sell-on clause.
All signs point to Bernabei becoming a Celtic player before the Austrian pre-season training camp.
Ange Postecoglou is landing one of his key priorities of the summer transfer window – strengthening the left-back position beyond current first-pick Greg Taylor.
Liam Scales has moved to Aberdeen and there’s no viable competition in the squad for the Scotland international.
Bernabei is an emerging talent in Argentina at 21, having already made 85 appearances for Lanus in the top-flight and in continental competitions such as the Copa Sudamericana.
Celtic have never signed an Argentinian but Bernabei looks set to make history and embark on his European career in Glasgow.
Hopefully, it all goes through without a hitch!
