Keirrison Very Close to Becoming Barcelona's First Confirmed Signing

Anurag BhattCorrespondent IJuly 12, 2009

Catalan paper Sport has claimed that Brazilian starlet Keirrison is about to become Barcelona's first confirmed signing of this transfer season.

Keirrison previously played in the Brazilian league side Palmeiras and had 80% of his rights owned by Traffic, with whom Barcelona's principal negotiations took place.
It is reported that only a few fringe details of the contract are to be ironed out, and he would most likely be presented later this week.
Keirrison, aged 20, is viewed as a long term successor of Samuel Eto'o. However, his immediate future with Barcelona is subject to speculation, as he could be included as a loan out in the Blaugrana's bid for David Villa.
