Copied and pasted from Apple site.

If the previous owner isn't present, contact them and ask them to follow these steps:
  1. Sign in to iCloud.com with their Apple ID.
  2. Go to Find My iPhone.
  3. Click All Devices at the top of the screen.
  4. Select the device that you want to remove from iCloud.
  5. If necessary, click Erase [device].
  6. Click Remove from Account.
After the previous owner removes the device from their account, turn off the device and then turn it back on to begin the setup process.

The phone is iCloud locked. Either he has to remove it from his account if the phone is even his. If not I would ask for my money back and do not replace the screen as it will not remove the iCloud lock.
