Wallace Set For Loan


Recommended Posts

Young Brazilian full-back Wallace is set to join a European club this season because there's no chance of him getting a work permit as he's yet to represent his country. Roma was rumoured to be his most likely destination although they may have filled that need when they added Maicon from Manchester City earlier this week.

Wallace played 45 minutes in today's first game of pre season, a 1-0 victory over Singha All-Stars where he won the penalty.

The 19-year-old, who joined from Fluminense for around £4m last December and spent the second half of last season on loan back at the Brazilian club.

"He's a very good player," said José Mourinho. "I knew him before. He's very mature for his age, comfortable with the ball. He has the quality of a Brazilian full-back, likes to attack and create.

"He's a good player and he won't be staying with us, because we have Ivanovic and Azpilicueta for the same position. He's also non-EC so we'll not get the visa, it'll be too early, so he'll go on loan for a season.

"We'll get the best option for him, in Europe. We want him to adapt. We'll see the best of him: he has talent and is one more investment for this club, a good investment, because the kid is a very good player.

A Serie A club would suit him, or there is an opening at Bayer Leverkusen isn't there? They've just sold Diego Carvajal back to Madrid, Wallace is a similar RB from what I've heard about Carvajal, should have used him in the Schurrle deal to bring the price down.
