The Rumour

Brazilian teenager Dodo appears set to join Manchester United after the teenager confirmed he is eagerly anticipating his switch to the Premier League.

The highly-rated defender has recently been linked with a move from Corinthians to Old Trafford.

And Dodo has claimed he will join up with the Red Devils next year, with reports suggesting that United will pay a fee of €6million (£5.4million) in February 2010.

“As there are already some Brazilians in England I suppose that I am going to get adapted easier,” said Dodo.

“I have never played with the twins Fabio and Rafael, neither with Anderson, but it’s good for me to have them near. Even Cristiano Ronaldo as he speaks in Portuguese.

The Analysis

Well we have to admit to not knowing much about the somewhat oddly named youngster but luckily i am sure the Man United scouting system is aware of his talents. For the player to come out and be quoted as being pretty much signed means one of two things. One, he has in fact been offered a deal and will soon be joining the biggest club on the planet or two, he is in fact deluded and in need of counseling.

Sir Alex has in recent seasons brought in a lot more young talent from abroad, be it from Brazil in the case of the Rafael, Fabio and Rodrigo (although registered to play for Italy he is from Southern Brazil) or from Serbia in the case of Zoran Toši? and soon to arrive Adem Ljaji?. The United boss has decided, quite wisely, to mix in these young foreign imports with his upcoming homegrown kids and perhaps Ferguson sees Dodo as very much part of the long term philosophy.

The Likelihood

Dodo to join Man United: Unless the teenager has mistakenly jumped the gun it appears that Ferguson is about to complete the deal for another member for his rapidly inreasing Samba brigade.
