“I prefer not to mention specific names but I can confirm that there are Italian and Spanish clubs on Brazao and many clubs have contacted us for this young and promising talent.”
That was Marcone Barbosa, sporting director of Cruzeiro, in an interview with Tutto Mercato Web, confirming the great attraction that Gabriel Brazao has on European clubs.
“I repeat, Italy and Spain are looking at him persistently. But the presence of Brazao is at Cruzeiro and with the U-20 Brazilian team, he has the U-20 South American tournament to play in a few days.
“Is he similar to Julio Cesar? He has his own style, he is a goalkeeper who is still developing with great margin for growth. So far, he has done very well at all youth sectors, proving to be an extremely reliable and formidable keeper.”
