Barcelona are attempting to find a loan club for imminent signing Douglas.
Marca says Barcelona have a deal worth â‚¬6-8 million in place to sign Douglas from Sao Paulo, but things have stalled while the Catalan giants figure out where the full-back will ply his trade this season.
BarÃ§a initially intended for the 24-year-old to stay in Brazil for another year and then to move to the Camp Nou at the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign.
However, these plans have been scuppered following the announcement by SÃ£o Paulo president Carlos Miguel Aidar, who revealed that such an agreement would be impossible because the transfer window in Brazil closed on 15th August.
