Barcelona consider move for Brazilian teenager Maia

Rio De Janeiro, Jul 13 (Xinhua) Barcelona have until this week to exercise an option to sign highly rated Brazilian teenager Gustavo Maia, according to press reports in the South American country.

The Catalan club paid one million euros (1.1 million U.S. dollars) to acquire the right of first refusal for Maia in March, following the 19-year-old's impressive performances for Sao Paulo's under-20 team.

According to Brazil's Lance news outlet, Barcelona must pay a further 3.2 million euros by Wednesday to secure the forward under the agreement.

It added that Sao Paulo were optimistic the transfer would go ahead.
