Barcelona Transfer News: Barcelona has often brought in players from South America, especially Brazil, over the years.
There have been many successes, but there have also been some spectacular failures, especially in the last few years.
But that hasn’t stopped the Catalans from keeping an eye on the Brazilian market for the best football players.
Endrick has been on Barcelona’s radar for a while now. Along with the wonderkid from Palmeiras, the Blaugrana are also looking at Vasco da Gama’s Andrey Santos, which Jeunes Footeux says is another exciting teen.
Barcelona Transfer News: What’s the matter?
The 18-year-old came up through the ranks at the Brazilian team and is now a regular member of the first team. He has played in 27 games and scored five goals in all competitions this year.
Andrey Santos is an all-round central midfielder who can play different roles in the middle of the field.
Not only Barcelona, but also Newcastle United, Paris Saint-Germain, and even Aston Villa are interested in him.
Will the deal be successful?
This week, Vasco da Gama gave him a new deal that will last until 2027. But they would be happy to get rid of the promising teenager for €30 million, which Barcelona can’t afford right now, according to a report.
But the giants in La Liga have already talked to the Brazilian team and the player’s team about a possible move.
Even though they can’t pay the fee right now, they hope to make a deal that will give them the first chance to sign the midfielder in 2023 or 2024.
Barca might think about a transfer where they can pay the fee over several years and get some nice bonuses. He could also be loaned back to Vasco for a season or two, which could give the Blaugrana an advantage over their rivals.
But they will have to compete with PSG and Newcastle, who have more money and can offer Vasco da Gama a much bigger sum to sign Andrey Santos.
