Release Clause in Lorran’s Contract With Flamengo Could Make Things Interesting
Romano reported through his social media platform that the latest “Brazilian sensation” is on the radar of the Red Devils with the Blues also monitoring the player. According to reports, both clubs sent their scouts to Brazil to better understand the player’s profile and potential. The teenager recently signed up for talent management agency, Roc Nation Sports Brazil, the agency owned by famous rapper JayZ. The likes of Vinicius Jr, Lucas Paquetá, Gabriel Martinelli and Endrick are also managed by the same agency.
Who Is Lorran and What Are His Strengths?
Brazil continues to produce immensely talented footballers and Lorran is the latest in line. The sensational talent is predominantly an attacking midfielder but his versatility and skill set allows him to play on the right wing as well. The 2006-born player has all the skills and talent required to operate as an inside forward where he can utilise his blistering pace to the best effect.
The Flamengo youth academy product is extremely quick which can be a huge asset on the counter-attack. His natural flair and dribbling ability combined with his remarkable close control make him very hard to dispossess. The Rio-born starlet has a powerful shot from a distance in his locker which makes him even more dangerous. At the tender age of 17, the Brazilian is showing promising signs and could well be the next big thing to come out of South America.
