7th July, 2007.
Manchester United are reported to have agreed a deal for Internacional youngster Rodrigo Possebon.

The 18-year-old midfielder is understood to have been watched by United for two years.

The Red Devils have now pushed through a deal for Possebon - who is looking forward to linking up with Anderson at Old Trafford.

"It is the fulfilment of a dream," he told Zero Hora. "I go there to play with Anderson."

Reports say the deal is worth 910,000 Brazilian reais (£240,000).

It is not United's first foray into the youth market in Brazil, only last year they struck a deal for Fluminese duo Rafael and Fabio - who will be eligible to move to England in 2009 when they turn 18.

Sadly, I think signing these types never seems to work out. I don't rate Anderson anyway, I've seen him play loads of times and I think it's 50/50 of him making it in the Prem.

Ive got just a slight feeling that you're a chelsea scumbag. Or a scouser.

I think someone's being a little paranoid....Just because I don't piss myself with excitement about players with huge price tags, doesn't mean I am a rival.

Im not pissing myself with excitement either thanks very much, but IMO true UTD fans don't go knocking players (and doubting SAF in the process) before they've even played for the club. We should welcome and support anyone wearing a UTD shirt, and if in the long run they dont work out, (as i'll admit has happened in the past 20 years) then fair enough.

I think the new signings will take a little time to become accustomed to the EPL. But with mentors like giggsy, shcoles and to some extent Ronaldo. They surely will fit in soon enough.

You EPL fans need to keep one thing in mind, Nani and Anderson aren't going to be the only two players on the field when we play other teams; There is also a player named Ronaldo who grabs a lot of attention also there's Giggs,Carrick and Scholes and Hargreaves,great playmakers to link up with. The pace and dribbling ability is whats going to make them a success in the EPL not their strength and they will win a lot of freekicks

Don't try and tell me that a player will succeed in the English Premier League without having strength. All players who have been successful in England have had to adapt their games to suit the unique physical style of the English game, even players like Zola and Juninho.Even the likes of Cantona and Bergkamp struggled at first, not used to being defended against in a way that they had never encountered on the continent.
Yes their dribbling skills and pace are going to be effective, but only when combined overall with strength and ability to anticipate the opposition. Just look at the difference between the Ronaldo of 3years ago, and the bigger, bulked up and stronger Ronaldo of the last 18 months or so.
