The report adds that Barcelona have now swooped for the Brazilian winger’s signature – despite Maia not yet having played a senior match.

The Catalans initially agreed a £900,000 deposit for the 19-year-old, but will stump up an additional £3.2m to complete the transfer.

Barca will reportedly secure a 70 per cent ownership of Maia, while Sao Paulo will retain a 30 per cent stake in their former player.

The LaLiga giants moved quickly to land the pacy young forward – who had also attracted interest from Liverpool and Atletico Madrid.

Maia has now become the latest Brazilian starlet to secure a switch to Europe even though he is yet to have played a professional game in his home nation.

However, he has impressed for Sao Paulo’s youth sides, and has turned out for Brazil’s Under 16s and U17s respectively.

Maia joined his countries most successful team as a 14-year-old, and he made waves after scoring 30 goals in 36 appearances throughout 2018.
