Barbosa, who scored both the goals that helped Flamengo beat River Plate 2-1 and win the Copa Libertadores in November, signed a reported five-year deal for around 17 million euros ($18.86 million). “If it’s for the good of the (Flamengo) nation, I’ll stay,” the 23-year-old Barbosa said on Instagram. The former Santos player was the top goalscorer in both the Libertadores and Brazil’s first division last year and a key player in Flamengo’s most successful season since Brazilian great Zico played for the club in the early 1980s.Tags: FlamengoGabriel BarbosaInter Milanlast_img read more
