Barcelona in advanced talks for €7M Sao Paulo fullback Douglas

Barcelona are putting the final touches on a deal for Sao Paulo fullback Douglas.

The right-sided wing-back, whose full name is Douglas Pereira dos Santos, is on the brink of joining Barca in a €7 million deal.

Douglas will arrive as cover for senior right-back Daniel Alves and ends Barca's interest in Fiorentina wing-back Juan Cuadrado, who is also a target for Manchester United.

The 24 year-old is inside the final year of his Sao Paulo deal and played for Brazil in the U20 World Championships.

While negotiations are at an advanced stage, Barca have Flamengo wing-back Leo, 23, as a backup should the deal fall through.
