Henrique Strikes Barca Deal

Brazilian defender Henrique Adriano Buss has agreed terms with Barcelona according to Sport. The deal could be wrapped up within the next few days.
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 player.  

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.
