Gabigol or Gabigone?

Gabriel Barbosa remains an Inter player as his Flamengo loan comes to an end, but Football Italia’s Chief Correspondent Richard Hall believes his fate is already sealed...

Gabriel Barbosa has always believed in himself. After scoring his first Inter goal, he claimed he had come to Milan to make history. In a way he did, it just wasn’t with Inter. Instead, after loan spells at Benfica (also a disaster) and Santos, he found himself winning the Copa Libertadores with Flamengo.

Now, with his loan running out on December 31, the question will be asked - can he return to Inter and make a name for himself or will he be sold? If so, where to?

Gabigol double wins Libertadores

Inter-owned striker Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa scored an incredible late brace for Flamengo to beat River Plate 2-1 and win the Copa Libertadores.

The Brazilians had been trailing in Lima after an early Rafael Santos Borre strike into the corner, making the most of sluggish defending.

River Plate dominated the first half, but Flamengo came back fighting after the break.

It wasn’t until the 89th minute that they managed to equalise through Gabigol, who pounced on Pratto giving the ball away cheaply.

'Flamengo plan to keep Gabigol'

Flamengo Vice-President Marcos Braz has confirmed that his club will “make every effort” to keep Inter loanee Gabriel Barbosa beyond December 31.

Gabigol has exploded into life this calendar year, scoring 26 goals for Flamengo in the League and Copa Libertadores, including a brace against Gremio to fire his side into the Final of the latter.
