It's not a big news for us, but I guess, it's not a bad topic to discuss.
Porto sign Santos midfielder Diego
LISBON, July 30 (Reuters) - Santos midfielder has signed a five-year contract with European champions Porto.
Porto bought rights to the 19-year-old Brazilian for €7million, the club said in a statement.
Possessing excellent vision, Diego inspired Santos to their Brazilian championship win two years ago when he was only 17 and was hailed as one of the great Brazilian hopes.
But he hit a poor run of form earlier this year. In April he was involved in a slanging match with club coach Emerson Leao after being substituted and there was media speculation he would soon move to Europe.
Diego was made one of the scapegoats when Brazil's under-23 team failed to qualify for the Olympic Games. He came back into favour during the Copa America where he was often used as a second half subsitute.
Diego came on in the 54th minute of the Copa America final against Argentina last weekend, scoring one of the penalties as Brazil won the cup in a shoot-out.
It's a good transfer for Porto, if the kid can live upto expectation. Brazilian replaces another Brazilian (I know that Deco now has Portugese citizenship)
Lets see how good Diego is.
