Inter set to sign Gabriel Barbosa and Joao Mario


Inter have confirmed they are set to seal the double signing of Joao Mario and Gabriel Barbosa.

The Serie A side announced on Friday that Santos and Brazil striker Gabriel - known as 'Gabigol' - had touched down in Milan, with Joao Mario also en route.

Inter wrote on Twitter: "Gabigol has landed in Milan. Joao Mario is on his way too."

They also sent a follow-up video which showed Gabriel arriving at the airport to huge fanfare.

Reports in Italy suggest the two transfers will cost Inter in excess of EUR70million, with Joao Mario's price tag at EUR45m.

Sporting CP midfielder Joao Mario, 23, played in all seven games as Portugal secured Euro 2016 glory last month.

Gabriel has also enjoyed an impressive close-season, with the 19-year-old playing six times as Brazil won the gold medal at their home Olympic Games. 

Speaking at the Europa League draw, Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti said the club are expecting a busy week in the transfer market.

He said: "There will be news in this last week and we will see what happens. Whoever comes will be a reinforcement and will be welcome."
