Flamengo's General Director, Leo Junior, has stated that his Brazilian club will soon be signing Ruben Olivera from Juventus.

The Uruguay forward plays with the bianconeri's youth team and has not found much space amongst the first team during these past 2 seasons.

Junior said he already spoke with the player and the final step is to start the negotiation with the Italian club.

"I already spoke with Olivera on his return to Uruguat after he player with his national team for the Olimpic qualifications and he gave me his willingness to come," said Junior. "All I have to do now is speak with the Juventus executives, but I don't think there will be any problems. By tomorrow everything will be done and Ruben will come to us and play as an attacker."

I think it will be a loan move...

When we signed him he was one of the best young talents in the world, and Real Madrid were reportedly also after him... another talent down the drain... :sigh:

It'd better be a loan move :frown: I'm gonna be fuming if we just sold the guy. He hasn't had a proper chance to show what he's got. Why don't we just sell Benjamin, Maresca and Miccoli while we're at it :groan:

They didnt. We accepted an offer from Empoli, but apparantly Olivera was late for the pre-season preparations and they cancelled the move.

    Came to think of it, he's got no dual-passport AFAIK so it would probably be permanent move thus leaving one non-EU spot to available to squad. This starting to look like Moggi's been busy on the background, Lucio? Rodriguez? some other south american bloke :dazed:

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps Moggi is trying to open up a non-EU spot so as to acquire someone like Lucio, Diego or Gonzalo Rodriguez. Why not sell Salas though? We haven't even given Olivera a real chance dammit! :groan:

    If juve really wants to free up space for non-EU, then why dont they get rid of zalayeta instead of olivera.

    zala is crap.

    Montero's got italian passport so count him out too. I don't know whether or not primavera players count.

    I believe Tudor is also a non-EU

    So we have:

    Salas
    Olivera
    Nedved
    Appiah
    Tudor

    5 is the limit and you can only play 3 on the field. On May 2004 we could add one more b/c the czech republic will be part of the EU.
