Rodrigo Possebon at Santos

Defensive midfielder, Rodrigo Possebon, has signed a four-year contract with Santos. The Vila Belmiro side have acquired 35% of the 21-year-old’s economic rights – the rest are owned by an investment group. Possebon will be presented officially on Monday. Santos have already won the Campeonato Paulista and the Copa do Brasil this season. After fending off a €35 million bid from Chelsea for Neymar last week, Santos have now set their sights on the Campeonato Brasiliero.

    He had played for Italy under 21 before, so can he play Brazil again in future?

    Wow i really didnt see this coming. He was doing so well at Man U before he broke his leg. I hope we can see him at AC Milan with Pato and Dinho. The ywould be great!

    He was playing very well and if it wasn’t for some great players at utd he would have got more games for the first team, I wonder if this is a strategic move so man utd can acquire a player from Santos in the future?
