Barcelona agree deal for Sao Paulo right-back

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- Barcelona have agreed to sign highly rated defender Douglas from Sao Paulo for six million euros, the Brazilian club confirmed on Wednesday.

But the 24-year-old will not join the Catalan outfit until next June after Barcelona agreed to allow the right-back to remain in Brazil on loan.

"The deal has already been accepted but the paperwork still has to be signed," Sao Paolo president Carlos Miguel Aidar told Brazilian news portal Uol.

Sao Paulo owns 60% of Douglas' economic rights with the balance held by sports marketing firm Traffic.

The former Brazil under-20 player has made 131 first-team appearances for Sao Paulo since joining from Goias in 2012.
