CONFIMRED - Pele

Would Jose know him from Rio Ave? If he recently cost £6m then we're getting a bargain surely?

Reading close to Pelé deal
Nice-Matin report that Championship side Reading are closing in on a deal to sign 27-year-old Portuguese midfielder Pelé from AS Monaco.

Finer details are currently unknown, with sources telling Get French Football News that the Ligue 1 side have received both permanent and loan with option to buy proposals for the player this summer.





This would be beyond good. Can it be true?!

Defensive midfielder, which we desperately need, who did very well in Portugal at Rio Ave. Would imagine some of the coaching staff know him well as a result.

Not quite worked out at Monaco after at €8m move and was on loan at Forest back end of last season.

Could be just what we need.

Hope,it’s him.there’s another Portuguese midfielder called Pele who left his last club due to a heart condition.

Yeah posted a bit about him on another thread

Looks useful, had a very good season for Rio, followed by a poor one for Thierry Henry’s Monaco last year

Statistically his loan at Forest didn’t look great, but seemed to make a reasonable impression according to the press. Good at breaking up play and a muscular presence apparently

Ridiculous penalty technique

He looks to have a bit of quality and certainly would be happy with the signing personally

Never heard of him, but I quite like the idea of having Moore, Pele and Puscas starting for us.

Neither did Baker at Boro and Leeds, Ejaria at Sunderland and Rangers, nor Miazga at Nantes.

He plays in a position we desperately need to fill and clearly has some quality given Monaco were willing to pay a reasonable fee. Hopefully he could flourish under Gomes.

Pele’s real name is Judilson Mamadu Tuncará Gomes.

Would be Reading’s first Guinea-Bissau international.

28 in September.

Midfielder.

Never really settled anywhere and Monaco obviously already looking to offload after reportedly spending €10m on him last summer (apparently €5m to Ave and €5m to Benfica) so doesn’t sound terribly encouraging but then their manager, Jardim, left Monaco a few months after so who knows.

He seems to have been most effective in his short spell at Rio Ave (just missed JG) which earned the move to Monaco.

As yet no mention in local media of this one.
