Santos' Victor Andrade

Check out the new batch of talent from Brazil here

16-year-old forward, Victor Andrade, has signed a three season deal with Santos. According to press reports, the player has already attracted the attention of Manchester City and Barcelona, and Santos have written in a €50 million buyout clause in Victor’s contract – €5 million more than they want for Neymar . The player’s economic rights are shared by the club, who own 80%, and Victor’s family who have the remainder.
The striker is expected to turn out for Santos in next year’s Copa São Paulo de Futebol Júnior – Brazil’s biggest youth tournament – which starts in early January. Depending on his progress, Victor might then be promoted to the first team in time for the Campeonato Paulista (São Paulo state championship), which begins in mid January.

    Hey Jon how’s it going?, I follow the Brasileirao because I think it’s the most competive tournament in America, I also watch Footbrazil, it’s a really cool show, anyways, 50 million is a LOT,seems he is the next Neymar. I haven’t seen Victor Andrade, so I can’t really tell how good is he, you obviously know a lot more than I do so I was wondering, if you think he is the new jewel of Brazilian football and more specifically from Santos. By the way I love your site, it’s really amazing. Cheers.

      Hi Javi

      glad you like the site and FootBrazil
      – i haven’t seen him play (i don’t think anyone has!) – Victor Andrade’s name and big contract came out of the blue. 50 million sounds a lot but it’s almost become a ‘standard’ buyout clause with young players here in Brazil. we’ll have to wait until next year before we get to see if he really is any good or not
