Adryan on the verge of 18-month move to Serie A club Cagliari
Brazil under-20 international Adryan looks set to move to Italian club Cagliari on an 18-month deal after his agent Reinaldo Pitta told UOL Sport.
The 19-year-old attacker only featured 14 times in the Brasileirão last season and according to his agent wants to move to the Serie A club based in Sardinia.
Pitta believes Flamengo only have to respond to the offer from the Italian side for the move to be confirmed. The deal is believed to be a loan move with an option to make it permanent.
“The Italians have issued the proposal, which is currently in the hands of the Flamego board.
“Adryan is interested and motivated by this transfer and it will be important for him to gain more experience.
“Sardinia is a city with similarities to Brazilian cities and that will help him adapt his characteristics there.
“The period is a year and a half and it will be crucial for the player to demonstrate his good football ability.”
Adryan has represented Brazil at several different age groups from the U15’s to the U20’s and has been linked with English Premier League club Manchester United in the past.
He will hope to follow in the footsteps of Kakà as one of the many Brazilians to develop their game in Italy.
