The Brazilian striker goes through the usual medical tests at the Ciutat Esportiva
Gustavo Maia is now in Barcelona and on Wednesday he underwent his medical prior to starting training at the Ciutat Esportiva. The Brazilian will join up with his team mates when training begins this Friday.
Gustavo Maia is 19 years old and joined Sao Paulo at the age of 14. After three trials with the club, he was brought into their academy, and since then has scored goals and won 7 trophies at all levels. His best season in front of goal was in 2018, when he scored 30 times in 36 games.
An international for Brazil at Under-16 and Under-17 level, he is a fast forward who usually plays on the left side -even though he is right footed. He continued to make appearances for Sao Paulo's second team, even when called up to the senior squad. A strong dribbler, with a powerful shot, he was a standout in the Copa Junior tournament.
