Barca wants to extend Keirrison’s Benfica loan

Barcelona signed the Brazilian striker in a €14million deal in the summer, but sent him out on loan immediately.

Keirrison has played just 136 minutes for Benfica so far.

Begiristain told Sport: “We are tracking Keirrison’s progress, as we do with all the players that belong to us.

“The idea is that he remains with Benfica for another year.

“We have a good relationship with the club.”
