Barbosa out on loan for rest of year
Flamengo have officially confirmed Inter striker Gabriel Barbosa has joined them on loan and he will stay there until December.
'Gabigol' had tweeted earlier in the week that he had agreed a deal to sign for the Brazilian side and now the move has been confirmed with Flamengo revealing he will stay with them beyond the summer and to the end of the domestic season in December.
The 22-year-old regained his form while on loan for Santos last term, as he ended up as top goalscorer in the Brasileirao and Copa do Brasil and he will hope for similar success back in his homeland with Flamengo.
Barbosa has struggled to make an impact with Inter and has managed just one goal in 10 senior appearances for the Serie A side.
