A young midfielder linked with a move to Manchester United a year ago is to finally clinch his big move to Europe.
The teenager had been playing for developmental side Desportivo Brasil, and had been tipped to join the Red Devils on their 2013 summer tour, but United's change over in management between Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes saw the deal fall through.
United did not pursue the player, who signed with Sao Paulo, and made 21 appearances for the Brazilian side last season.
Verona were the side where Juan Iturbe made a huge success of himself last season, signing for Roma this summer for £25 million.
Evangelista has a chance to make a name for himself, and show United why they were wrong to pass up the option to sign him, and even convince them to revisit the possibility.
