Gabriel Moscardo is headed to The City of Light…
Paris Saint-Germain has reached an agreement to sign the 18-year-old Brazilian soccer phenom, a midfielder for Corinthians, per ESPN sources.
ESPN reported last summer that Chelsea had a bid of $22m rejected.
Other teams in Europe, such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Atlético Madrid, also made inquiries about the Corinthians player but did not make offers.
Sources have told ESPN that Moscardo recently visited Paris and will sign a five-year contract at the club.
Before Moscardo turned professional, Barcelona also showed interest in the player but talks did not go ahead.
Promoted to the first team this season, Moscardo has made 25 senior appearances for Corinthians, registering one goal and one assist.
