Douglas in basketball player swap?

Barcelona could send Douglas to newly-promoted Alaves in exchange for USA basketball player Adam Hanga.

Sport reports the proposed transaction comes as the President of Hanga’s side, Josea Querejeta, is also the head of La Liga’s Alaves, and he asked for Barcelona to consider swapping a football player for Hanga to join the Catalans’ basketball wing.

Hanga is a forward with Laboral Kutxa and would go to Barca in return for Douglas joining Alaves, the right-back having rejected a €1.5m move to Cruzeiro as he wants to stay in Spain to receive an EU passport.
