Gustavo Maia never attained to feel comfortable in the City Condal

It was an investment without 'feet neither head' that never attained to settle in the discipline of the Barça Atlètic. It yielded him in several opportunities, first to the Inter of Carry Cheerful until December of 2022 and afterwards to the filial of Valencia CF in the second RFEF until this summer of 2023. Although it contested some parties in the lower division of the combined 'blanquinegro', 17 to be precise, did not attain to convince to the technician Miguel Ángel Angulo so that it asked his incorporation for the next campaign.

Maia was grieve one of the so many desaciertos of the 'Was Bartomeu'

The case of the ex of the São Paulo is grieve one of the occasions in which the Barcelona square finished signing to a juvenile Brazilian player and this did not finish debuting in the first team. In the recent time, surface the memories of Henrique and Kerrison that arrived to the City Condal by 8 and 14 million euros respectively and did not have his big day in the club. Likewise, it costs to mention to Matheus Fernandes, that arrived to the Barcelonan cast by 7,7 million euros, did not arrive not even to be presented in the Camp Nou and finished his relation with the institution blaugrana with a demand of by half.

The one of Gustavo Maia adds to a list of wrong transactions that did in this nefasto summer of 2020, in which it bought expensive to players that, to the dessert, did not surrender as it expected , like Trincao by 31 millions, for example. In addition to that did the barter of Arthur by Miralem Pjanić with the Juventus, which finished being investigated by the fiscalía of Italy by presumptive irregularities.
