Palmeiras to sign Ryder Matos from Fiorentina
Palmeiras are close to completing the loan transfer of Brazilian attacker Ryder Matos from Fiorentina.
Fiorentina picked up Ryder from Brazilian club Vitória at a very young age and local press labelled him as the 'Brazilian Messi'. Ryder had a loan spell at Vitória's rivals Bahia where he took part in Copa São Paulo Júnior and returned to Fiorentina in 2013. Ryder can be the 16th signing of Palmeiras and are also awaiting a court decision before moving for Santos midfielder Arouca. According to Lance!, Ryder will be joining Palmeiras on loan until December of this year.
