Barcelona to rival Chelsea in race for Brazilian teen sensation Gabriel Barbosa

1 Aug

Barcelona have joined Chelsea in the race for teen sensation Gabriel Barbosa.


The striker has been turning heads in Brazil with his performances for Santos and he has been dubbed the new Neymar.

Chelsea have been chasing the 19-year-old all summer and reports in South America claim they are ready to submit an offer of £25million.

But, according to Marca, the Premier League side will now have to face competition from Barcelona.

The Spanish champions are in the market for a new forward this summer to provide back-up for the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Barca had looked at Sevilla forward Kevin Gamerio, but after he was snapped up by Atletico Madrid for £28m they are ready to move for Barbosa instead.
