According to and Sky Sport 24Milan have already reached an agreement over Cruzeiro’s youngster Gabriel, as the player is expected to become officially Milan player next week.

  1. What a pleasant surprise. Gabriel is by far the best young keeper we have here. I knew he was facing some problems to renew his contract with Cruzeiro, but this move is quite a (huge) surprise.

    Congratulations to Galliani, Braida and “Il Concorde” Serginho, the head of our scouts here in Brazil.

    ” (…) for ‘only’ €300,000″? I’ll give you soon my bank account number… You can send me “only” €300,000. 😀

    But you’re right. This sum of money for such a talent redefine the word bargain.


    • Hahaha 😀 No no.. I’d “give my soul” for that €300,000 if needed 😀
      We’ve got a deal! As soon as I find that amount of money…
      I hope he turns out to be a surprise signing, same as Nocerino.
      Moreover, this afternoon was the first time I found out about this guy and the next second there’re 100 of people stating that he is a magnificent goalkeeper. However, since I’ve heard that from you – I’m starting to believe in it.
      And I’m having a new crush in the squad 😀 After Prosinek, Tamas, De Sciglio.. there’s Gabriel on the list :))))


      • Whether he is going to be a surprise signing or not we’re going to check only in three seasons. Nocerino was ready when he was hired, Gabriel is only four years older than you.

        But I repeat: he has potential to be our ‘keeper in a not so distant future.
