RIO DE JANEIRO - European champions Barcelona have made a big-money offer for Palmeiras striker Keirrison. According to Brazilian media, Barcelona have bid 15 million euro for the 20-year-old. "The player won't be considered for Sunday's match against Santos ... and will remain out of the team until the situation is resolved," the Sao Paulo-based club said on their official website on Friday. Keirrison, who was playing for Coritiba when he finished as top scorer in the 2008 Brazilian championship with 20 goals, joined former Real Madrid coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo's Palmeiras in January.
