United wrap up Brazilian pair

Manchester United have today agreed a deal to sign 17-year old Brazilian twins, Fabio and Rafael, from Brazilian side Fluminese.

The pair, who are both full-backs will fly into Manchester on Monday and begin their careers with the Red Devils although they cannot play for United until the summer.

Both had a trial at United back in 2006 and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has decided to offer them contracts."After eights visits to Manchester United, we will travel to live in England," said Rafael who is a right-back, whilst his brother Fabio is a left-back.

"In the last two years we went there about every three months, we stayed for 10 days and then returned to Fluminese."This time we will have the whole family, father, mother and my older brother's wife with him."
