Gabriel Barbosa, Lucas Lima on Santos future

Santos duo Gabriel Barbosa and Lucas Lima are unsure whether they will remain in Brazil following the Copa America Centenario.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Gabriel Barbosa is unsure whether he will return to Santos after the Copa America Centenario, with Lucas Lima's future at the club also unclear.

Gabriel has been heavily linked with a move to Europe, with Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly taking an interest.

Last week, the 19-year-old striker's agent Wagner Ribeiro suggested his client could well be an option for PSG ahead of the 2016-17 season.

Having played his final Santos game before joining up with the Brazil squad – a 2-1 win over Coritiba – for the forthcoming Copa America, Gabriel admitted he does not know whether he will return to the Paulista club.

"It's difficult to say, I cannot confirm anything, but I'm very happy at Santos," he told Lance!

"It is always a privilege to play in the Vila [Belmiro] with the fans beside us.

"I'll get plenty of rest and go to the national team. If I go back or not, we will see more in the future."

Gabriel's Santos and Brazil team-mate Lucas Lima is also has doubts about his future after the tournament in the United States.

The midfielder turned down offers from China in January in favour of a future European move, with Real Madrid and Barcelona thought to be among his potential suitors.

"I do not know [if I have played my last Santos match]. It could be yes, it could be no. I personally do not feel that it was my last game in my heart, but you cannot guarantee anything," he told Globo Esporte.

"There is [a possibility of negotiations]. The window will open and a lot can happen. I have a great affection for Santos and we'll see what happens.

"Everyone is watching, more so for the national team. I know that the Copa America is also important for me because of this – it is an added incentive for me to stand out."
