Gustavo Maia reportedly joins Barcelona from Sao Paulo

Brazilian youngster Gustavo Maia who is the star of the moment in his country has reportedly completed a dream mega move to Spanish side Barcelona from Sao Paulo.

This comes less than 24 hours after Barcelona lost the 2019/20 Spanish La Liga title to bitter rivals Real Madrid who are now the new champions of Spain.

Gustavo Maia has been impressive since he started his football career on the streets in Sao Paulo before joining the city’s youth football team.

According to the report on UK Sun, Barcelona have been monitoring the 19-year-old forward since January when he impressed in an encounter watched by the Catalans’ chiefs.

The report added that Barcelona have now swooped for the Brazilian winger’s signature despite Maia not yet in the first team of Sao Paulo this year in Brazil.

But the youngster can continue the development of his football at possibly Barcelona second team from next season.

Barcelona are said to have first deposited the sum of £900,000 for the transfer of the player and they will pay more subsequently.

Premier League champions Liverpool and Atletico Madrid were also said to be interested in the signing of Gustavo Maia before Barcelona snapped him.

Earlier, Wothappen had reported how Barcelona suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat to visiting Osasuna at the Camp Nou in their second to last La Liga match of the season.

The visitors grabbed the opener just after 15 minutes through a stunning strike from Jose Arnaiz with Pervis Estupinan providing the assist. It was tough for Quique Setien to restore parity for the Catalans all through the first half of the encounter.

After so many tries, Lionel Messi finally found the back of the net through superb freekick which hit the edge of the back before crossing the goal line.

The hosts looked like they could overturn the result in their favour with the likes of Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal coming on in the second half.
