    He's full name is John Dennis Campoverde Ramírez and he was born on the 27.10.1997. If I understand correctly he will come to us in January. Don't know what position he plays or who he resembles in style
    Forza Inter!

    I mean morally, like you've just taken a kid away from his freinds and family etc, what if he doesn't make it, pretty much robbed him of growing up at home.










    No?

    the kid and his family have to agree to the move, he isn't being kidnapped

    and usually the parents or whatever move too, and they get a better living environment and a larger income

    I know there's permission involved

    I dunno, just seems kinda weird, like, academies at that age should just be local.

    I think the kid would be pushing for it more then anyone else. these guys are semi pro atheletes at this yound age, and have been working at it for countless years already. its a dream come true for them. the last thing they would be thinking about is next saturdays party down the road at a frenz place.
    Ma Milanista Che cazzo canti, Nella tua testa I ricordi sono tanti,
    Ci ricordate, del sei a zero, Ma gia' scordate Serie B e Totonero,
    Percio' ricorda, nella tua testa, quando eri in B tutta la nord faceva festa,
    Tifoso pirla, ma chi minacci? Altro che curva, siete un gruppo di palliaci.

    E Milan merda, Milan, Milan merda, E Milan merda, Milan, Milan merda.

    Actually I see it as a huge opportunity for the kid and his family (not only economically of course,anyone would pay to have an experience like this),considering that he was discovered thanks to Inter Campus (which I guess you know what kind of organization is),it's a nice thing for me.

    Does anyone know what the story with him is?

    I cant see him in any of the youth teams - either we are waiting until he's 18 to sign him, or he's been released already.

    Ultimately, he had to leave Italy, although Inter wanted to keep him, this time family wellfare was the winner."

    So he pretty much came back to ecuador because his family just couldnt keep up with how expensive shit was in Italy. sad really

    I really hope to see him back in europe sometime later in his career......

    we evidently didnt believe in him much, because presumably we were paying his family some subsistence. Or else for all the kids, people like Justice Opoku etc, it would be impossible to keep up with costs.

    As far as I could see, he's gone back to really small clubs at home, I cant find any real note of him anywh

    In that same article his mom mentioned that the club payed for the house but everything else was on them.

    As for where he is now, he is under contract for deportivo cuenca, a reasonably big club here, but its rumoured he has offers from mexican teams
