Adryan, regularly dubbed ‘the new Kaka’ throughout his career in Brazil, is keen on a move to Leeds United, as reported by Simon Austin, journalist for The Sun and other sources.
The talented midfielder moved to Massimo Cellino’s Cagliari last season, but he is keen on moving to England to join the Whites.
Cellino is apparently a big fan of the Brazilian youngster, who impressed as a youth team player in his home country.
He has previously been targeted by Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Adryan’s agent will meet Cellino at Elland Road tomorrow.
The new Leeds owner told Simon Austin:
“The player wants to come to Leeds, that’s not the issue.
“I know him well and he is a special talent.
“But this is a complicated deal. There is still talking to do with Flamengo and the player’s agent.”
Leeds were much improved in their second clash of the Championship season, and despite a tricky start to the match, they went on to win 1-0 through a late goal from new signing Billy Sharp.
Hockaday today spoke of a handful of new signings he expected the club to make before the transfer window shuts, suggesting more business in the coming weeks.
