Transfer report: Paris Saint-Germain poised to beat Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United to ‘new Neymar’
The 19-year-old Brazilian has already been tipped for a big future, with scouts comparing him to Neymar.
But according to Barbosa’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro, Paris Saint-Germain are the club who have made the first move.
“I have spoken a lot with Olivier Letang (PSG’s Sporting Director),” Ribeiro told Radio Bandeirantes.
“Now, the French league is finished, they will take a look at possible signings. The dream of the president is to win the Champions League, they have a lot of money to invest in football.
“Maybe Gabriel will be an option. But everything is already good. He is happy at Santos. He has a contract, he is in great form, so we will wait for what is next.
“Santos have nothing to lose. Gabriel has great potential and, if it is not now, he will be a fantastic return on the investment that the club made in the future. It is a question of time.”
