Swedish newspapers reports according to AFP (Angece France-Presse) and some local Portuguese sources Freddy Adu and Benfica have agreed on a 5-year contract. Benfica will pay only 2 million euros for him. That's a bargain if u ask me.:cool:

Its true it might be a too big step from Major League to Premier League for a guy born -89 and his time in Portugal will tell if he's a guy for the big leagues.

I think its sweet to hear how his mum turned down big money from Inter Milan and some other clubs just to keep his son at home. :)

There were complications with SAF signing him. If he does well in Portugese football SAF may go for him. United is going the Brazilian/Portugese way of football where as Liverpool is spanish and Arsenal is french.

If he's THAT good, SAF would of signed him up after his trial at United last season
He was never given a trial by United. Newspapers have been reporting that and its just false. He wanted to keep himself in shape during the american off season and United offered him the chance to. It was not a trial by any means.

It wasnt an official trial. He came to train with the United squad thats all (officially) but anyways he would have to go back as he was still contracted to the MSL and still too young to be signed. A lot of people need to remember the non-parallel season calendars of the MLS with almost any other league. He came to the club to train and stay in shape (much as Eddie Johnson with Reading, Josh Wolff with Everton, as well as a host of other mls-based players have done in the past, in-between seasons). Obviously, the club can and does take advantage of this by having a look at whomever is there; but it's no different than when dwight yorke trained with the club pre-WC.
