Agent of Hernán Barcos plays down rumours that the striker will quit Palmeiras

David Barcos, the brother and agent of Hernán Barcos, has played down reports that the Argentine striker will quit relegated Palmeiras to move to Italy.

Barcos, 28, who joined Palmeiras from LDU Quito in January 2012, was exceptional in the Verdão’s fight against the drop last season and has recently been linked with moves to Sampdoria, Genoa and Juventus.

However, David Barcos, the player’s brother and agent, took to Twitter to play down quotes he had made in an interview with Italian website Tuttomercatoweb.com.

In the interview, the agent was quoted as saying: “"Yes, the idea for Hernán is not to play in Serie B with Palmeiras.

“He is in the national team of Argentina and looking for a team where he can remain at high levels and continue the experience with the Selección”.

However, David Barcos took to Social networking site to clear up any confusion around the quotes.

"Friends, I stated that it is not ideal for Hernán to be playing in Serie B because of the Argentine team, that's it.

“He has a contract and will comply. Admittedly, Palmeiras collaborated to Hernán be convened for selection and we are grateful." 

In the interview with the Italian website, the agent confirmed that Barcos had not extended his contract and would consider offers from Italian clubs.

"He has a contract until 2014 with Palmeiras and there has been no renewal until 2016. The coming weeks will be decisive for its future.

"Unfortunately at the moment there are just rumours, no Italian club has contacted me but Hernan is attracted to the Italian league.

“In Serie A there are many teams that like my brother, certainly an offer from Italy would be carefully considered.

“Anyone who plans to take Barcos can contact me, I repeat that we are willing to consider a possible proposal.

Barcos has a release clause in his contract of €15 million which may put off any interest, but this could be negotiable.

"After the relegation I think this amount is negotiable, Palmeiras might settle for a lower bid."
