The Brazilian champion has only held for a year, but has already won a lot of goals. Now it is worth 80 million euros
Everton Sousa Soares is only 23 years old and is already a phenomenon sought after by many international clubs. The Brazilian champion, is a side wing currently in force at the Gremio.
The summer was a real panacea for the player, able to stand out in the America’s Cup by winning the top scorer title with 3 goals (like the Peruvian Guerrero) and above all as the mvp of yesterday’s final against Peru, thanks to the 1-0 and the 3-0 penalty obtained at the end of the match.
Everton, in fact, who found space in the Seleçao, after the k.o. of Neymar on the eve and the opaque test to the debut of David Neres of Ajax, the substitute of Ney. Everton entered 9 ‘from the end with Bolivia, at the debut of the Cup, and after 4 minutes he placed his trademark: conversion from left to center and big right to turn.
But he had to wait for the third match, with Peru in the group stage, to become the owner of the Seleçao. Even there the 3-0 signed him right, this time on the nearby pole, but still coming in from the left. He who is one of the three Brazilians (with the third goalkeeper Cassio and the defender of reserve Fagner) to still play at home, and therefore more loved by the torcida.
A career that began in the youth teams of Fortaleza, a club some thirty kilometers from home, and then in 2012, at the age of 16, at the Gremio, after a youth tournament, the Copa Carpina of Pernambuco, where he had shown off. Cost of the deal: just 70 thousand euros. In 2014, Manchester City already monitored it.
Today Everton is worth more than 40 million, perhaps more than 80 of the clause in the contract with the Gremio, valid until 2022. Leonardo of Milan in April tried to anticipate all by offering 35 million to the Gremio, but Renato’s club was not satisfied.
On him now, it is rumored in England, it seems Manchester United is back with arrogance, which had already carried out a survey a few months ago.
