OGC Nice has announced their first signing of the summer transfer window, the Brazilian defensive-midfielder Danilo Barbosa from SC Braga. The 20-year-old midfielder spent the previous two years of his career with the Portuguese side, SC Braga, where he made 76 appearances, netting 6 times. The details of the transfer are undisclosed, the French club have not revealed the transfer fee or the duration of the contract signed.
OGC Nice have committed to their “philosophy,” which is to bet on young prospects with enormous potential. According to the club’s website, OGC Nice has been following the development of the Brazilian for several seasons, and what attracted them most is the player’s solid experience of the European football.
For the past few months, speculation has been rife surrounding Jean-Michael Seri’s future at the club.
Could the arrival of the Barbosa mean the departure of the Ivorian Seri, or is the Brazilian considered an addition to the team? Only time will tell.
Les Aiglons are understood to have inserted a €70m release clause into the player’s contract.
