Manchester United’s link with Desportivo Brasil could be set to provide us with another gem.
United’s connection with the Brazilian team hit the headlines the season before last when a number of then unknown Brazilians appeared at old Trafford as United took on Bolton. Whilst it was no secret, the details of the deal are better known now and a number of players have appeared for United or clubs with ties to United such as Molde and FC Twente.
One of Desportivo’s brightest stars Bruno Gomes will be joining United at some point in the near future, but could he be joined by a player some in Brazil are calling the new Kaka?
According to Brazilian football website Sambafoot 17 year old Wellington Bueno, also known as Juninho, is looking like he could be one of the next wave of Brazil’s stars. The midfielder is already represented by the same man that looks after Neymar and former United target Lucas Moura and has trained at FC Twente perhaps with a view to move to Europe in the future.
Although no move has been made by United, if he does develop the way people in Brazil are expecting he could very well end up at United consider the fact United have first option on all of the talent that emerge from Desportivo.
