PICTURE: Brazilian on second trial with Manchester United this week

Desportivo Brasil youngster Douglas Garcia has been at Carrington this week on trial with Manchester United.

The 16-year-old’s representative Alexis Malavolta uploaded a picture of him and Patrice Evra and he was all smiles for the camera.

This isn’t the first time that Garcia has visited Carrington as he was previously pictured with Anderson on his last trip back in November, so he must have impressed on his first outing enough to earn a second trial.

Desportivo is one of United’s feeder clubs and Garcia is the latest Brazilian to come over for a trial. The one we all knew about was Bruno Gomes as he was very open that he wanted a move to Old Trafford but it never materialised.

It’s always good to see that United’s academy is busy at work behind the scenes looking at some of the most promising youngsters from across the world. A lot of them aren’t up to the grade of United but it is worth it for when we unearth a gem.
