The Brazilian midfielder "will play at Barça in January"
The father of the Brazilian midfielder from Fluminense Gerson, Marcao, confirmed at Mundo Deportivo that "Gerson will play at Barça in January". Flu's footballer would have rejected offers from 3 other major European clubs such as Juventus, Manchester City and Atlético Madrid. Marcao has confirmed the intention of his son to come to Barça, "Gerson will stay at Fluminense and in January will play in Barça. We appreciate the interest of other teams, which is a sign that my son is doing it well, but our decision is taken: Gerson wants to play at Barça, is his dream."
The father of the Brazilian also said that Barça is the best place "to mature", ensuring that "Gerson is ready to make the leap to Barça first team, unhurried, so still have to improve many things and should demonstrate their qualities on the field, but there is no better place in Europe to grow". Marcao added that "although there's not an agreement, but both the player, Fluminense and Barça will benefit from the transfer".
Regarding the comparison with Pogba, the father of Gerson said that "everyone talk about Pogba's characteristics, maybe he hasn't much force as the French, but he knows to be placed on the field, has the technical skills like Iniesta, who is his idol, and knows to associate well with the team and has arrival".
Referent amb la comparació amb Pogba, el pare de Gerson ha destacat que “tot el món parla que té les característiques de Pogba, potser no tingui tanta força com el francès, però sap col·locar-se bé sobre el camp, té la tècnica d’Iniesta, que és el seu ídol, sap associar-se bé en el joc d’equip i té arribada”.
Fluminense's version would be the same as that in the same statement through its president, Peter Siemsen, made it clear that "Barça can rest assured with Gerson". Gerson, who will share minutes with the new signing of Fluminense, the former Barça Ronaldinho, according Marcao will be "in 2 years in one of the best players in the world".
