Brazilian teenage forward poised for Barcelona move

Rio de Janeiro, Dec 20 (IANS) Highly rated Brazilian teenager Robert could join Fc Barcelona in January as the Catalan football club prepares to rejoin the transfer market after an 18-month absence, according to media reports in Brazil.

The current European champions are lining up a one-year loan deal for the forward with an option of buying him for seven million euros, reports Xinhua.

Barcelona have been barred from the past two transfer windows for breaching regulations regarding the signing of foreign under-age players.

Luis Enrique’s side has already secured Turkey captain Arda Turan (left) and former Sevilla winger Aleix Vidal (right) ahead of the ban’s December 31 end.

Robert, 19, has already won a legion of admirers in Brazil despite making just a handful of appearances for Fluminense’s first team.
