Gomes Internacional has joined Internacional on a 3 year deal, ending a well publicised dalliance with .

The Brazilian teenager was thought to be in Manchester ’s plans after undergoing what was thought to be a successful trial at but during the summer the club showed a reluctance to sign him. This soon changed and it was believed that United were back in the hunt, alongside Real Madrid and Udinese for his signature.

With United’s ties to¬†Desportivo Brasil it was believed that they would be at the front of the queue but Gomes, 18, announced that he had joined¬†Internacional tweeting:

United had first refusal on Gomes, so it is likely that the club passed on him as it was believed they would in the summer.

The striker, who became a hit with United fans due to his tweets in support of the club, scored over 100 times in 3 years for Desportivo but he will be taking his talents to Porto Alegre.

Only time will tell if the decision to pass on him proves a correct one.
