The 27-year-old had been linked with a move to Rennes in recent weeks and has now put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at the club.
Rivals Lens were also interested in Barbosa but failed to land the player, who may well join Fulham's Abdeslam Ouaddou (pictured) at Rennes, after the giant defender sealed a loan move back to France on Wednesday.

The Amsterdam club have already had one bid for the player rejected but an improved offer is expected to be put on the table when the relevant parties meet later in the week.
