Barcelona Transfer News: Latest on Gabriel Jesus and Thomas Vermaelen Rumours

Barcelona are reportedly set to return with another bid for Palmeiras starlet Gabriel Jesus after failing to land him with their initial offer of €19 million plus €5 million in add-ons.

According to Sport’s Joaquim Piera, the powers that be at the Camp Nou will meet “this coming week” to discuss transfer plans with Jesus being a “focus.” The forward is also said to be pursuing the move himself “and will do his part to force any deal through,” which leaves Barca “confident” they can secure him despite interest from Real Madrid.

He has a €24 million release clause that they are willing to meet, but if possible, the Blaugrana are hoping to pay less than that, as his rights are split between several parties including the player, the club and his agent.

Lastly, Piera adds the Catalan giants are hoping he can form a positive relationship with Neymar while on Brazil duty at the Rio Olympics this summer.
