Gabigol hints Barca desire

Brazil starlet Gabriel Barbosa has hinted that he would like to join Barcelona as “playing alongside Neymar would be really nice”.

Gabigol partnered Neymar and former Barca target Gabriel Jesus in Brazil’s attack en route to first-ever Olympic gold. and the Santos attacker admits the lure of reacquainting himself with the No 11 could see him solve La Blaugrana’s fourth-striker conundrum.

“Until now, I haven’t really had time to think about anything [relating to my future] because my attention was on the Olympics,” he told reporters in Rio via AS.

“Now I’ll celebrate with my family and then return to Santos to think about what I’ll do.

“[On playing alongside Neymar at Barca], he’s a great player and playing alongside him would be really nice.”
