Manchester United sign Brazilian teenager Lucas Evangelista
Manchester United have taken out their option to sign 17-year-old midfielder, Lucas Evangelista, from their feeder club Desportivo Brasil. The versatile youngster, who can play as either a creative or defensive midfielder, impressed United with his marking, dribbling ability and work-rate. The teenager will only sign professional papers with the Premier League club when he turns 18 in February next year but will spend some time in England training with the United youth teams.
Name: Lucas Evangelista Santana de Oliveira
Clubs: São Paulo juniors, Desportivo Brasil
