Internacional say that they’re close to securing a long-term deal with their much-coveted teenager Andrigo Oliveira De Araújo. The 15-year-old is regarded by the Porto Alegre club as one of their best prospects for years and have offered the player a five-year contract. Under Brazilian law, Andrigo can only sign professional papers when he turns 16. This could leave the door open for Manchester United and Barcelona who have already enquired about his services. Andrigo, however, says that he’s keen to stay at Inter and hopes to have a deal wrapped up with the club in the coming week.

    El mayor problema es la ansiedad de los jugadores del barca, por la falta de gol. Cierto que el Barcelona no tiene la sobrehumana continuidad de hace dos temporadas. Seguro que la añora, pero añora más la pegada, la dinamita. Cuando se deja puntos (Mallorca, Rubin Kazan…) y todavía más cuando gana pero se obliga a sufrimientos innecesarios. Convincente pero escaso de munición en el Calderón, San Mamés, en la segunda parte ante el Valencia o en la primera ante el Copenhague. El filo de la decepción conduce a los nervios, bendice inseguridades y reanima a rivales noqueados. Y partidos de apariencia lustrosos terminan en incordio.
