Barcelona said to have agreed terms with Brazilian midfielder

Barcelona said to have agreed terms with Brazilian midfielder”

You often read reports about the power Lionel Messi has at Barcelona and that when the five-time Ballon d'Or recommends Barcelona sign a player, they listen and try their best to follow through.

Barcelona look to have all but wrapped up the signing of Santos attacking midfielder Lucas Lima after a report from Fox Sports Brasil presenter Benjamin Back suggested that he will formally sign a pre-contract with the Catalan giants next month.

Lucas Lima, 26 years old, might seem a unusual punt for Barcelona - but they appear to be getting the services of one of Brazil's best technicians. Lima has the quick feet, instincts and vision to fit Barcelona's philosophy, and he's proved his abilities at the highest level with the national team.

There are however some reports refuting the claims from Fox Sports Brasil, citing Barca's hard with dealing with Santos when they signed Neymar in 2013.

'It would have been a request from Neymar. He's not 100 per cent sure why he did not sign, it's 99.99 per cent because on July 1st he signs with Barcelona'. So the information I have is this.

While Santos are keen on keeping hold of their midfield assist-machine and have offered a new deal that's massive by Brazilian standards - offering £22,000 per week + bonuses over a four-year period - it pales in comparison with what Barcelona can offer.

That will happen on 1st July and it means the 26-year-old will finish the ongoing 2017 Brazilian season with Santos and head to Spain in January upon his formal release.
