The People is reporting that Manchester United are to light up the Premier League once more with another sensational Brazilian teenager.
The player in question, Adryan, is to secure a deal with the reigning English champions after heavily impressing in the U17 South American Championship this summer. Due to his age he will not be gracing the turf of Old Trafford just yet though and will stay at his current club Flamengo until he turns 18.
Brazil manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo has seen to it to have Adryan train with the full Brazil national team on occasion and is treated as a player with a huge potential in the game. His performances at the recent U17 championships in South America suggest he is a clever footballer with a huge range of skills.
It looks like Sir Alex Ferguson has pulled off another great piece of business in Brazil where it seems his scouting team are excellent at spotting genuine talent. Of course the move is still a gamble, and it remains to be seen whether or not he will acclimatise and perform – though all evidence suggests he will prosper in England under Ferguson. Still – anyone remember Juan Sebastien Veron?
What are your thoughts on Adryan? Is he a great signing like many believe or another Bebe?
