The Catalan giants are considering taking legal action after it was revealed in Brazilian newspaper Globo Esporte that they were supposed to have first refusal on the 20-year-old striker, an agreement that was reached back in 2013. However, Santos went ahead and sold Gabigol, full name Gabriel Barbosa, to Inter despite the prior arrangement with the 'Blaugrana'.


Santos maintain that they sent all the necessary paperwork over to the Camp Nou club on 29th August, the day before Gabigol was announced as an Inter player, yet Barca have retorted that the documents were not detailed enough and did not give them permission to conclude a deal with Inter.

Barca are now considering complaining to FIFA and pursuing legal action in order to receive compensation from the three time Copa Libertadores champions.
