Brazilian Nevilles Arrive

Brazilian twins Fabio and Rafael will fly to Manchester on Monday to being their life in England.

The two full-backs, both 18 years old, signed a pre-contract agreement with United in 2006 but they had to wait for their dream move to realise. They will move now and though they won't be able to play until July, they are over the moon.

'After eights visits to Manchester United, we will travel to live in England,' said Rafael.

'In the last two years we went there about every three months, we stayed for ten days and then returned to Fluminese.

'This time we will have the whole family, father, mother and my older brother's wife with him.'


'We know there are Brazilians of our age doing well, Anderson, who is our friend, at Manchester United and we talk to Lucas who used to be at Gremio by MSN.'

'But the greatest example for us is Alexandre Pato,who know perhaps we can follow the same path as The Duck?'


Well, scoring in their debut game like Pato did for Milan would be a little surprising... after all, Pato is a striker.

But seriously: welcome to United, lads! Hopefully you'll become at least as good as the Neville brothers were for the club.

that sounds like a good deal for them and if they do become big stars you've already got them hooked to your club

all too many youngsters come over and fail to reach expectations - will these guys be another set that fail to make the grade, or will they shine in the PL?

One of the brothers is a brilliant free kick taker, both are excellent crosses of the ball. If they can adapt to the physical side of England they will both be great players.
