Brazil goes back to be the nursery of the biggest teams of Europe. After the signing of Reinier Jesus by the Real Madrid, the FC Barcelona has wanted to answer to his eternal rival and already would have closed the contracting of another perla Brazilian. The barcelonistas would have tied already to Yan Couto, right-handed side of alone 17 years of the Coritiba. The international 'canarinho' Sub-17 would arrive to the City Condal in summer, when it fulfil the majority of age.

The half of Brazil Globoesporte advanced this signing that also has confirmed already the newspaper Sport. The culés seems that they will pay some five million more variable euros by the carrilero to reinforce even more the position of right side. Right now, to fault to solve the future of Moussa Wagué, the blaugrana would have four players for this place, five if it explains to Emerson, that will play in the Betis until the 2021.

Couto Is one of the footballers with more future of Brazil and there were a lot of teams of level interested in him. The Barcelona would have been fast to advance to all they and close his incorporation. Bayer Leverkusen Or Arsenal are some of the clubs that wanted to fichar to the Brazilian, that was included in the list of the 60 better youngsters of the world that published the newspaper 'The Guardian' the past year.

The future Barcelona player has some extraordinary conditions to triumph in Europe and in the Barça. It is very fast, electrical with balloon and technically seems more an extreme that a side. Of the Brazilian school of the Dani Alves, Cafú, Roberto Carlos or Marcelo, ofensivamente is a constant danger. Defensivamente Still has a lot that improve, but has spare arms in attack that can compensate this.

The idea of the culés is to leave to the Brazilian in the Coritiba until summer, since they can not ficharlo until have the 18. Once fulfilled, the perla would cross the Atlantic to play in the Barcelona. The normal would be that it incorporated to the filial barcelonista, but neither would be necessary descartar a cession to a First. Emerson was direct to the Betis, that bought part of his rights, and is going him very well without having given this intermediate step.

Semedo Could influence in the future of Couto

Also it will be necessary to see which sucede with Nélson Semedo in June before taking any decision with Couto. The luso could go out and the one of the Coritiba could have the opportunity to win a place in the staff in pre-season. With 18 years and without experience in Europe, nevertheless, seems complicated that this suceda. The idea of the Barcelona club was to go to by a right-handed side contrasted, although it can not descartar at all still.
