Danilo Barbosa joins Valencia CF on loan

Valencia Club de Fútbol have reached an agreement with Sporting Clube de Braga to sign player Danilo Barbosa on loan until June 30th, 2016, with an option to purchase. Barbosa, who is 19 years old, was a runner-up with Brazil in the Under-20 World Cup this summer and was awarded the Silver Ball in the competition.

After signing his contract with Valencia CF, the player was shown around Mestalla accompanied by club Chairwoman, Layhoon Chan. Barbosa told valenciacf.com, VCFplay and VCF Radio that he is “very happy to be joining this great club and to get to know the stadium. This is a very pleasing moment for me, facing a new challenge. Valencia CF are a team with a lot of history, and I want to participate in that. I am going to give my all for the club.”

Layhoon Chan welcomed Barbosa to the club and commented that: “I am very pleased to announce that we have another talented young player joining our big Valencia CF family. We know that many big European clubs wanted to sign Danilo, but I'm very glad that he decided to join our squad. He was one of the best players in the recent Under-20 World Cup, he is the captain of the Brazilian national team and I think that shows the character this player has. I am sure that our fans are going to be looking forward to the many, many exciting moments that this young player is going to provide for them.”

Danilo Barbosa will give a press conference at the Ciudad Deportiva press room on Wednesday, July 15th, at 11:30am.
