On 13 July 2016, Digne joined Spanish La Liga side FC Barcelona on a five-year deal. The fee was €16.5 million (£13.8 million), with the possibility to increase to €20.5 million (£17.1 million), according to individual and team results.[8] On 14 August 2016, Digne made his first appearance for Barcelona in a 0–2 victory against Sevilla FC in the 2016 Supercopa de España first leg.[9]
