“Next Neymar” To Make Jump To Europe

Ethan Tait

Brazil has gifted the world with some of the greatest footballers of all-time with the likes of Pele, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, and Roberto Carlos.

Fortunately, more and more Brazilians are making the hop across the Atlantic into Europe for the world to enjoy.

The next big thing to come out of the nation of Samba, brothels, and the Zika virus (according to Hope Solo) is Gabriel Barbosa, the Santos wonder kid dubbed the “Next Neymar”.

He’s 19 years old and is balling out like no other for Santos; I believe he’s worth the hype.

He scored 21 goals for Santos last season, no big deal.

Top clubs have been vying for the youngster’s signature with the likes of Leicester City, Inter Milan, and Roma being the top suitors.

The idea of Gabigol joining the Vardy Party is enough to get any man excited and they have Champions League football – Inter Milan can’t say the same.

It seems like Santos is a bitch to deal with in the transfer market, so Claudio Rainieri would want to play any games with the Brazilian giants.

Whatever the case, I hope we have another world class Brazilian to add to the list. And we don’t mean Adriano, who is now running some favela gang in his home country.

Gabigol will go to Leicester, become a cult hero, and then secure a move to Barcelona to join Neymar.

Trust me on this.
