Shakhtar has transferred another Brazilian

by Football Pub on Friday, June 14th, 2013

Shakhtar Donetsk transferred a new Brazilian in the team. The Ukrainians have paid to Gremio € 11 million to give way to Fernando, a new promising young footballer in Lucescu’s squad.

The Brazilian midfielder Fernando, 21, has signed a contract for 5 years with the champion of Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk. The Ukrainian grouping is already famous for the ” bunch” of young Brazilians that Lucescu concentrates on Donbass Arena. He will join his colleagues from the Selecao Luiz Adriano and Douglas Costa.

Last week Fernando seemed headed to Italy, Naples being one of the teams that negotiated with Gremio. Finally Shakhtar was more convincing and managed to refrain the signature of the player, who has played only for Gremio so far.

Fernando probably will replace his compatriot Fernandinho, the 28-year-old midfielder was transferred to Manchester City, the Ukrainians cashing big money in this business – £ 34 million.

The Brazilian midfielder began his career at the club in 2010. From then until now collected 140 appearances for Gremio, for which scored 11 goals in this time. For the Brazil national team has played 6 games.
