The FC Barcelona carries months giving him turns to the signing of the young Brazilian extreme Gustavo Maia. The forward of the Sao Paulo is one of the big perlas that have the paulistas in his quarry and the culés arrived to an agreement to be able to do with him this summer. It was necessary to pay 1,5 million euros to ensure his arrival and 3,5 later to clear the operation. It was a cheap bet in which it did not lose almost at all of not going out well, by what took for granted that it would do .

Nevertheless, the coronavirus arrived to remain to Spain and with him has generated an enormous economic crisis that still goes for long. The Barça has seen very affected by the same and the budget for the season that comes has seen affected directly. This has forced to look with a lot of calm and without precipitating all the operations, included the one of Maia. By this reason, the club was giving him so many turns to what do with the Brazilian jewel and with the option of purchase that there is on of the table.

There was a sector in the managerial board that thought that in a moment of crisis like east was risked and unnecessary bet by a so young player that not even had debuted in the elite. Other directors, as Xavi Vilajoana, ensured that the 'canarinho' went to arrive yes or yes. But the division in the board was real and is therefore by what has take so much in deciding what do with the footballer. At the end, as it aims 'Sportive World', the Barça will give him the "himself" to Gustavo.

The idea of the Barcelona right now is to pay the million and half of euros that pactó before 15 July and renegotiate the conditions of the 3,5 that subtract. The aim would be to fractionate the payment of this quantity not to have to spend all the money of hit. This is probably by the crisis and the problems of effective that there is now in Can Barça. In fact, not having fichado still to Lautaro Martínez is precisely because it has not been able to gather the money that asks the Inter of Milan by him.

Therefore, Gustavo Maia will play in the Barça the season that comes and will incorporate to the filial to keep growing. The paulista is a polyvalent forward that shines what more approaches to the bands. Indistinctly it creates and desborda from both sides and stands out especially by his skill in the one against one and his ease to look for put it rival. When being right-handed, play in the left facilitates him have more options of face to goal, although in the right also manages well.

Maia does not have the name of Vinicius or Reinier

The culés carried time following him and now that have option to close his arrival go to do it. Maia does not have the fame neither the name of other jewels of Brazil like Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes or Reinier Jesus, the three already in the Real Madrid, but costs a lot of less than all they and the margin of profits will be a lot greater. If it goes out well and it triumphs in Barcelona will be an extraordinary signing, and if it goes out badly hardly will lose money, since five millions is not big thing for a club of this entity.
