Barcelona can't sign this summer and there isn't a new president yet, but the club is still working to help Luis Enrique in improving the team. While Braida and Soler were at Milan this Wednesday trying to secure the signing of Paul Pogba for the future, Raul Sanllehí, the club's football director, was at Brazil trying to sign Fluminense's player Gerson.

Brazilian newspaper Lance spotted Sanllehí in Fluminense's facilities negotiating for the midfielder. According to this report, Juventus has offered 16 million euros for the player and Barcelona are trying to beat this offer. Let's remember that Barcelona already paid 3 million euros to Fluminense for Gerson to secure a preference if there was another offer for Gerson.
