Lazio Sign Uruguayan Starlet Gonzalo Barreto From Danubio

85464_298Lazio have signed Uruguayan Under-17 international Gonzalo Barreto from Danubio on a five year deal worth €3 million, but he will not be able to play until January, when he turns 18.

“I am delighted to have the chance to join one of the world’s biggest clubs. The contract has been signed, and I cannot wait to join the squad,” Barreto is quoted as saying.

It is said the striker will join Lazio in November, when he will begin training with the first team squad ahead of his possible introduction in January.

Though the news has made headlines in Rome, Lazio have not substantiated the move.
