The Palmeiras defender has raised a few eyebrows at Camp Nou and the Blaugrana are looking to bring in a top-class defender into the squad.
The 21-year-old will
be the fifth player to arrive in Barcelona
following Keita, Pique, Caceres
and Dani Alves.
According to Sport, Henrique
has agreed personal terms with the Blaugrana after he met with Txiki
Begiristain who flew to Brazil
to try and convince the player to move to La Liga.
Begiristain has told the club
that the player has given the go-ahead for the deal to move forward and now the
Blaugrana will need to try and convince Palmeiras to part-company with their
Barcelona will table between €8m-€10m in order to prize
Henrique away from Brazil
and the deal could be completed within the next few days.
It is believed the
defender will sign a five year deal with the Spanish giants.
Henrique is a strong and
powerful defender and his quality on the ball will go down well at Barcelona. He made his
debut for the Brazil
national squad earlier this year.
