Keirrison and Henrique (Digital Journalist)
The relationship between FC Barcelona and young Brazilian players goes back many years ago.For lifestyle or game, who knows, probably all, the Catalan club has tended to bet on football carioca pearls. Some of them have passed into history as stars of world football, others have done as some of the biggest disappointments of the long life of theclub .
The big question that arises one ofthese days, both are talking about theGabriel Jesus ,Gabigol , Luan … is, what will happen to them?What group will be? Did they willenter the select group of Ronaldinho, Romario, Ronaldo, Rivaldo or Neymar and will become a fiasco for the Catalan club? And they have not been few players who arrived at Camp Nou as future stars and that come one day, they left without anyone noticing they had even, come to play blaugrana dresses.
Keirrison: arrived in the summer of 2009, with 21 years as a future star.From Palmeiras, which the club paid a whopping 16 million euros, the young carioca striker landed at the Camp Nou as a bet for the coming years. Nothing isfurther from reality, Keirrison did not ever wear the Barca shirt. In fact, it did not even make his debut in a friendly match. He went on loan to Benfica first and then Fiorentina, then do it in the Santos, Cruzeiro and Coritiba. He ended up leaving Barcelona as a free agent.
Henrique: Arrived in Barcelona in 2008, with 22, also from Palmeiras, in exchange for 10 million euros. The central promise not reached never wear the shirt of the club in an official match.However, unlike his Brazilian counterpart, yes he did in a friendly match. During his years as FC Barcelona played on loan at Bayer Leverkusen in Racing Santander and Palmeiras, where you end upstaying. Free, of course .
Douglas: One of the rarest and surreal operations has led the FC Barcelona in recent years. In 2014, to thesurprise of many Brazilian fans, who could not believe what happened, the club signed by more than 5 million to a side of 23 years Sao Paulo, Douglas Pereira young.After two full seasons, the carioca defense has only played 370 minutes Blaugrana.
Rochemback:International absolute and idol in his club, Sport Club Internacional, a very young 19, Fábio name, landed in Barcelona as one of the best players in the world and as a future star of global reach. The Catalans fans, however, remember him as one of the most ruinous operations in club history. The carioca midfielder signed for just over 9 million euros and left for almost ten times less than you paid. His bluntness with ball and without it is the only memory that keep the Catalans him.
Geovanni: In 2001 the Barcelona paid 21 million astronomical figure at the time, a young striker who said it was the new Garrincha. The fact is that, if it was, never came to prove. He played 50 games culé dress and no more than 2 goals scored officers. Free running out marching speaks for itself. Barca fans prefer to say that this move never existed.
