Barcelona have reportedly completed the signing of 19-year-old forward Gustavo Maia from Sao Paolo.

The Catalan giants had already shelled out €1 million to have priority to sign the left winger and have now paid up the extra €3.5m to bring him to the Camp Nou, according to ESPN Brasil.

Maia also appears to have confirmed the deal has gone through with a post on Instagram:

It is expected that Maia will join up with Barcelona B once he arrives from Brazil and will get the chance to impress with García Pimienta’s side next season.

Maia’s agent, Danilo Silva, spoke about a possible Barca move last month, revealing the youngster was already having Spanish lessons and “always wanted Barcelona.”
