Olmo will not be in the squad for Saturday’s match with Frankfurt and will hook up with his new team-mates for his first training session on Monday.
Barca had held a long-term interest in Olmo, who came through the club’s famous La Masia academy before joining Zagreb when he was just 16.
They were considering re-signing him, while AC Milan had also been pursuing the 21-year-old, but he has decided to move to the Bundesliga with Leipzig chasing their first-ever top-flight title.
Olmo, who scored on his debut for Spain against Malta back in November, wanted to leave Dinamo this month to give himself the best chance of making their squad for this summer’s Euro 2020.
