FC Barcelona has agreed a deal with Brazilian club Palmeiras to bring star striker Keirrison da Souza Carneiro to the Club. Barça will pay 14 million euros plus a variable of up to 2 million extra depending on the number of matches played.

The 20-year-old striker has signed for the next five years but will spend next season out on loan.

Keirrison will arrive in Barcelona on Thursday and go straight to the Club’s offices at approximately 4.30 pm where he will take part in a photo shoot.

14+2 million transfer fee

FC Barcelona will pay14 million euros plus a variable extra of 2 million depending on the number of matches played with the first team.

Keirrison will have a medical on Friday before signing his contract with the Club.

Guardiola’s opinion

The Club has decided to sign him but in principle he’ll go out on loan. I won’t be counting on him for this season”. It has not yet been revealed where he will play.

A guarantee of goals
As Guardiola says, Keirrison da Souza (1.81 tall and weighing in at 70 kg) is a deadly finisher with a nose for goals. Despite his youth, he’s been one of the sensations of the Brazilian league, firstly with Coritiba and then with Palmeiras, thanks mainly to his tally of 26 goals.
