Flamengo have announced the signing of Gabriel Barbosa from Inter Milan.

Gabriel Barbosa joined Inter from Santos in 2016 after signing a five-year deal with the club. But he was unable to make an impact and was sent out on loan to Benfica the following year.

Following another failed attempt and a return to his former club, he finally joined Flamengo on loan last year where he managed to boost his career.

So far in the Brazilian Serie A, Gabigol has scored an impressive 34 goals in 43. He has also won the Copa Libertadores during his stay at the club.

Flamengo recently announced that they have signed the 23-year old on a permanent basis from Inter Milan for €17 million. According to reports, Gabigol has signed a deal to stay at the club until 2024.
