Barcelona win chase for Gerson

Spanish giants Barcelona have agreed a deal to sign Brazilian starlet Gerson from Fluminense, the player’s father has revealed.

The Catalans were locked in the battle with Juventus for the youngster’s signature, but having earlier secured the right of first refusal, the Spanish side have now also agreed a transfer fee with the Brazilian giants.

Gerson’s father went on to confirm that his son will join Barcelona as soon as their transfer ban is lifted in January.

“Gerson will be staying with Fluminense for now and then join Barcelona in January,” Marcos Antonio da Silva told El Mundo Deportivo.

“We appreciate the interest of other teams, because it is a sign that Gerson is doing well, but we have taken our decision.

“He wants to play for Barcelona. That has always been his dream.”

Gerson, 18, came through the youth ranks at Fluminense and has already shown a great deal of potential.

The youngster made a total of 25 league outings for the club, scoring 4 goals, and has now secured a lucrative move to one of world’s most famous clubs.

Gerson represented Brazil at the Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand, where the Selecao were beaten by Serbia in the final.
