It is reported that Keirrison revealed through a statement in his website that he will not participate in the next game against Santos because there has been an agreement concluded regarding his transfer to FC Barcelona and this decision was made jointly with the directors because of the interest from Barcelona.
The player also added that while negotiations are underway, he will be training alone. The player also added that he has a great affection for all followers of Palmeiras and also for all his colleagues who will surely seek a victory.

Keirrison was born in Dourados, Brazil and he is the son of a Operário Futebol Clube footballer Adir Carneiro and Alzira Rosa de Souza. His name was chosen by his father, as a tribute to rock musician Jim Morrison from The Doors, and an admiration for the letter K.
His older brother is called Kimarrison and his younger Krayon. Keirrison and his father bought a football club from Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul state in April 2008, and renamed it to Centro de Futebol Keirrison, shortened as CFK9
