The brother and agent of the player admitted that Barça contacted the forward
Brazilian forward Jonas Gonçalves gets his name added to the list of potential recruits for Barça's attacking line. This was confirmed by his brother and agent, in an interview to Globoesporte. "Someone that said they were talking in the name of Barça talked to me to know about Jonas' situation", the agent commented.
However, the contact didn't lead to anything more. The agent himself explains that there wasn't any offer following the talk from the Blaugranas' part, and as there wasn't any more contact, he thinks it will be difficult to seal the deal. "We feel flattered, this interest is a recognition of the great season Jonas has made", Tiago Gonçalves added.
Currently the player is one of Benfica's great stars, and he won't leave his team if there isn't any offer "that make the player and the club itself happy", the agent explained.
