FC Barcelona’s move for Petterson Novaes has collapsed almost at the last moment, after reports had made it clear he would sign from Flamengo.
According to a Brazilian reporter, “the loan proposal, which was accepted by Flamengo, underwent ‘changes in some clauses,’ and the deal fell through.”
The deal would have been a loan, with a purchase clause rated at €3-4 million that Barcelona could execute at the end of the season.
Novaes, who is 19, had been performing for Flamengo’s U-20 side and was set to join Barcelona Atletic.
MLS side Chicago Fire made an offer of $6 million for him, but Flamengo turned it down.
