Official: Gabigol joins Flamengo

Flamengo have officially signed Inter striker Gabriel Barbosa on loan for the rest of the calendar year.

Gabigol had already tweeted confirmation of his move earlier in the week, but Flamengo have now formalised it themselves.

A statement on the club’s official website reads they have loaned the Inter attacker until the end of the 2019 Brazilian season, which finishes in December.

The 22-year-old regained his form for Santos last term, running out as top goalscorer in both the Brasileirao and Copa do Brasil.

Although he wears the No 12 in Flamengo’s announcement video, Gabigol is expected to the take the No 9 jersey vacated by Paulo Guerrero.
