Official: Milan sign Porto youngster Ferreira

68

AC MILAN have reportedly signed the young defender.

After Philippe Mexes, Taye Taiwo and Stephan El Shaarawy joined the first team, Milan moved to focus on the Primavera side that is having a revolution this summer as the coach and many players have left.

According to the show Speciale Calciomercato on Sky Sport, the Rossoneri have defined the acquisition of Ricardo José Araújo Ferreira, better known as Ricardo Ferreira only, from Porto this week.

The CB, who was born in 1992, has never played for the senior team of Porto but has developed in their youth system. Ferreira, who has played for Portugal’s U19 NT, has reportedly been released from Porto.

If the report is true, the player could join Milan’s pre-season as they are short in center backs.

UPDATE [7/7/2011]
It is now official, Ricardo Ferreira is a new Milan player!

It’s about damn time we buy young players… this guy is very promising… better than letting him fall to Arsenal or Madrid (which could have happened).

He’s a very promising defender.

Oh, that’s just so wrong. Go check his stats first. CBs are identical with cards & this is normal as they’re the last player (aside from GK) in the field that protect the goal. But do try check Silva’s stats & compare him with other CBs in Italy & even Europe, then you’ll understand how mistaken your statement was.

These transfers are as important as getting A team players. We get these promising youngsters and in future few of them can play in starting 11 without spending big money to get players with similar quality… Just be patient with mr.X they promised him and we could trust them

wat a surprise, free transfer, dats us, #1, wen it comes 2 spending on qaulity, wat do u we do, nothing, last year was an exception, we wait until other teams take the players, yes, u will c milan wont sign a champion unless its a free transfer. Milan want 2 win champs league, haha, gotta laugh. Woo 4 free transfers, starting eleven, seedorf, gattuso, ambrosini, antonini, oddo n bonera especially should start together, we will go far.

i believe the young ferreira will be loaned out to small club either in serie A or serie B. he will never be promoted to milan first team. sure, he will be parked to milan primavera if there is no club interested in using his service.

@ Dear Giancarlo- check out Real Madrid and Manchester United. it is not August but they had great signings. either u are mistaking or they are going to get a lot greater players when August arrives. We all know milan wants players very cheap, but to compete in the CL we should get better players. I dont mind these kind of signings, its great. Also the thing is i dont 100% believe that milan will buy someone very very good when August arrives and at the end of it. Maybe at the last second something goes wrong and then we… Read more »

we got mexes and taiwo for free. a team would easily pay 15m for each of those players and we got them FREE before the transfer window even opened, and with them we solved some problems in defense. we are also getting promising young players, and we are linked with amazing players…WHY ARE PEOPLE COMPLAINING!

villa wasnt a flop. . . he had 18 goals (tied for 5th best) and 5 assists in league in 34 apearrances and another 4 goals in champions league including the final. . . .but with that said i dont think no big signings means no champions league but milan needs one final piece to the puzzle it just needs to be the right player

R. Madrid and ManU and ManCity are big time spenders. they don’t care if they spend more than what the player is worth so they can get him fast. They don’t know how to play the market well and just get anything they see. A great majority of their players are flops, they just buy because they like to spend big, and that gets them nothing. Meanwhile teams like Milan actually think before hand if a player fits their system well. And yes the best transfer happen in August. Have Barca bought Sanchez or Fabregas, no of course not. They… Read more »

I AM NOT saying that they are doing the best thing. but we are doing even worst. at least Man Utd got to the final of CL and Real Madrid stopped at Semi finals just because of Barcelona. Both of them are better than Milan right now. Milan is spending very CHEAP. if they spent more than this, then thay will be the best in the market, and that way they can become the BEST in the world faster and even better than Barca. the thing is that Milan is VERY RICH, they got alot from the players they sold.… Read more »

Yeah no denying that they have been cheap. But I think its better if they took their time and really analyze a player, we don’t want to have to deal with what happen at Barca with Villa. or Ricardo Oliveira.

Patience, we want to be champions, quick movements won’t help us like R. Madrid.

i think we had have enough time to analyze Ganso, and other players that can come to milan.

I dont think Villa was a flop but yeah i dont want to buy a player that can end up like Torres.

MR.X is GANSO because Milan worked hard to make the FIGC change the rule to 2 non-EU players. Now they should make their move.

Maybe Mr Y. But they will still need one more midfielder apart from Ganso.

http://www.youtube.com/user/zouzinho5#p/u/4/EWvAo9X7B3g Watch this video to see Ganso vs Venezuela. If every1 said theat he played shit then i think this Vid will prove you wrong. 1st of all, nearly every1 for Brazil was was playing badly. Ganso was actually playin good because he didn’t lose the ball that much, he played some great balls through for ROBI and PATO but they didn’t read what Ganso was going to do. Thats why Pato and ROBI couldn’t link-up properly with Ganso, I think this is because they haven’t played along-side each other for long enough. Neymar got a great chance when ganso… Read more »

Ganso was decent but Pato was actually better. Ganso wasn’t so bad because he demonstrated he has talent but yet lacks experience. He gave a good opportunity to Neymar, and Neymar wasted it. Neymar was actually the worse of all of them.

agreed on this one. Neymar was very very bad. Ganso played kinda SCARED. and Robinho should work on his finishing, so next year he will score not like this year where he missed a dozen chances.

just finished watching uruguay vs chile in copa america. sanchez and suarez are good. i saw a young and promising CB from uruguay, sebastien coates. i believe that his physical appearance can attract lots girls to support his club and to buy its merchandise. coates is very useful to score with his heading skills.
