The Blaugrana team hired Gustavo Maia, a 19-year-old player, for 4.5 million euros. In principle it will play in the branch.
It is not official, but it seems to be done. Gustavo Maia , the young Brazilian pearl of Sao Paulo will play in Barcelona. The São Paulo club agreed to sell the player for 4.5 million euros, keeping 30% of his pass for a future total sale of the player. In principle the footballer will be in the branch.
Barça had already committed a million euros at the beginning of the year for Gustavo Maia and had until July 15 to decide if he would definitely stay with the promising attacker of only 19 years old. This Monday, the parties agreed to the definitive transfer, according to the Brazilian press, specifically Globoesporte.
Gustavo Maia has never played in the Sao Paulo first team. He is forward, a fast end on the wings and little in the middle. It measures 1.68 centimeters. Small, yes, but with great technical virtues. He joined the base categories of the São Paulo team in 2014, when he was 13 years old. He was international with his selection in the South American sub-16 and sub-17.
And it is expected that he will debut in a short time in the professional team. Several large clubs in Europe were interested in the signing, but it was finally Barcelona who stayed with him.
