Villarreal have come to an agreement to sign Gremio midfielder Tiago Dutra, according to El Periodico Mediterraneo (who cites the President of Gremio). Tribalfootball is reporting that we have already decided to loan him out to Real Sociedad, but they are rubbish. Dutra is 18 years old and plays a central midfield role. He has been compared to Marcos Senna - not bad!
After what happened in the Champions League, I like the fact that we are going to be relying on a lot of youth next year, as shown by our signings and the increasing importance of Jordi Pablo and Matilla - who will probably both be in the squad for the weekend.
Speaking of Champions League - I hope you got to watch the Chelsea -Barcelona match, and watched it all the way until the end. Amazing! I did not want to see another Manchester/Chelsea final, and will be happy to see some Spanish representation.
