Manchester United move would be a ‘dream’ for Brazilian

Brazilian teenager Douglas Garcia is ‘calm’ about a potential transfer to Manchester United after being allowed by current employers Desportivo Brasil to undertake a trial with the Premier League champions.

The 16-year-old central defender has twice trained at the club’s Carrington base, where he has spent time with Warren Joyce’s under-21 side while also mixing with the first-team players.

It remains unclear if Manchester United will take up the option to sign Garcia on a permanent deal and, although it would be a ‘dream’ to move to Old Trafford, the youngster realises he may not be afforded the chance to join the Red Devils.

“My goal is the same dream as from everyone else, but I'm very calm about that, just like my agents,” Garcia said in an interview with Sport Witness.

“If it works out it would be great, but I may end up in other clubs as well. My agents will take care of it.”

While a move to Manchester United is not guaranteed, the player has been making the most of his opportunity to further his education with the club, and has been able to seek advice from some of their most prominent players.

“I had contact with everyone during the training and during the meals,” he explained.

“They are wonderful people, and they like us more when they know we’re Brazilian. I talked more with Evra, Rafael, and Ferdinand, a very nice guy.”

Garcia also adds that Rio Ferdinand is the player he most admires.
