Paqueta: More Brazil freedom, but...

Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta admits he is given ‘more freedom’ by Brazil but insists Gennaro Gattuso is playing him in his best position.

Many saw Paqueta as a spiritual successor to Kaka when Milan signed him in January, but the 21-year-old has gone on to find a home in central midfield as opposed to further afield.

“It all happened very quickly,” he told reporters from Brazil’s training camp, referring to his €35m transfer.

Alex Telles 'expected Italy call'

Brazil new boy Alex Telles has confessed that ‘I’d be lying if I said I didn’t expect to be called up by Italy.’

Alex Telles spent the 2015-16 campaign at Inter and is on record as saying that he feels Italian, given he holds an Italian passport and has grandparents from the peninsula.

However, the Porto left-back was recently called up to the Brazil squad for the first time after he scored the penalty that knocked Roma out of the Champions League.

Report: Juve sign Brazilian defender

Juventus have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Flamengo defender and Brazil youth international Wesley.

Calciomercato.com cites reports from Brazil that claim Juve will be able to register Wesley at the end of March, when his Flamengo contract expires.

The teenager - who turns 19 on Sunday - is a right-back who won the South American U-17 Championship with Brazil in 2017.

He is nicknamed ‘Gasolina’ for his pace and is represented by Mino Raiola but has not played since last May due to a contractual dispute with Flamengo.

Official: Parma sign Brazao

Parma have finally confirmed the signing of teenage Brazil goalkeeper Gabriel Brazao from Cruzeiro.

Brazao’s contract was deposited with Lega Serie A on January 31, but only now have Parma announced his arrival as they tweeted a picture of him holding a club scarf.

The 18-year-old helped Brazil finish third at the 2017 U-17 World Cup and was called up to their senior squad in November.

It is understood his signing came in conjunction with Inter, who did not have any empty non-EU spots left but should have him in their ranks next season.
