Sao Paulo defender Gustavo Maia will complete his € 4.5 million transfer to Barcelona this summer, according to his agent Danilo Silva.
Economically fair play, Trabzonspor excluded from European cups
The Blaugrana club paid EUR 1 million to the 19-year-old last summer to protect the interests of other European clubs.
However, the terms of this agreement include an additional payment of EUR 3.5 million before June 30, and Silva is confident of the completion of the deal.
“We are confident that Barcelona will complete the transfer,” he said in an interview with Radio Transamerica.
“The club’s signs are good, and Maia has already started Spanish lessons to prepare for the transition. Other clubs were interested, but it was clear he wanted to go to Barcelona.”
