Report: Barcelona set to close deal for Sao Paulo defender Douglas
Sao Paulo defender Douglas is expected to join Barcelona next week, according to reports.
Sport, as noted by Football Espana, claims that the signing of the Brazilian full-back will be announced in the coming days, as Barca continue to strengthen ahead of their impending transfer ban.
If Douglas does sign, as expected, it is unclear whether he will remain at the Catalan club next season.
Some reports have suggested that he could be initially loaned out to another European club before returning to Barcelona, while others insist Head Coach Luis Enrique would like to keep him at his disposal.
