Inter Announce Youth Signings from Brazil
Today Giuseppe Bergomi has announced that Inter have signed three more Brazilian youth prospects to join the two already joining later and the one that has already joined. There has been a strong link between Inter and signing youth prospects, and things look to continue in this vein. Besides these poached young players, wonderkids Ademilson and Adryan were also signed by Bergomi, and Coutinho was signed before. Here are the three signings:
Diego is a 17 year old center back who plies his trade for Flamengo. He is considered to be the next Thiago Silva, and he is already world class at both aerial challenges and tackling. The skills he has shown in defense and his great work rate and determination have led many to believe Diego will be the next leader of Brazil's back line, along with a slightly older Inter player Emerson Luiz.
Rafael is a 16 year old central midfielder who plays his football at Santos. The club is famous for the creation of world superstar Neymar, as well as attacking midfielder Ganso, and has created many fantastic youth players. Rafael was noticed by Inter scouts due to his fantastic first touch as well as top notch passing, shooting, and technique, as well as success in the air. Rafael will have a lot of competition in Milan, but many are confident Rafael will be a star.
Rodrigo is the crowning jewel of Bergomi's three new signings. The 16 year old Internacional striker is considered the next Neymar in terms of footballing success. He was the first to be noticed by Inter's scouts, and for good reason. Rodrigo's finishing and heading are already of the highest quality, and this is wonderfully complemented with his world class first touch and dribbling skills. Rodrigo is a true talent, and will become an Inter legend.
