Official: Flamengo buy Gabigol

Gabriel Barbosa has officially signed with Flamengo and the Brazilian forward completed a €17m deal from Inter.

The Copa Libertadores winner have confirmed the arrival of Gabigol and would reportedly have to pay 20 per cent of a future re-sale of the player to.

The 23-year-old has been on loan at Flamengo since January 2019 and has contributed 34 goals in 43 matches for the club.

Inter also loaned him out to Benfica earlier and Gabigol has seemingly failed to feature in the future of the Nerazzurri.

Now, it’s official and Barbosa has signed a deal until 2024 with his new side.

The striker arrived from Santos in 2016 and cost Inter €29.5m, but never managed to make an impact at San Siro, nor at loan with Benfica.

He has rediscovered his form at Flamengo and helped them to the League title and the Copa Libertadores.
