Monaco’s right-back fits the profile of “signing for a decade” due to his youth, potential and projection

The 21-year-old Brazilian is on the rise and his hiring would have aspects very similar to the incorporation of Dani Alves in 2008

Going for Vanderson de Oliveira is being convinced to make a sporting and financial bet on a footballer who would have to mark an era. His would not be an immediate and short-term performance signing, a temporary patch. The 21-year-old Monaco right-back is a player on the rise, with a privileged physique, who is at the right point of maturation to exploit and be able to play at the highest level for many years.

In his country, they see him as the best option for the right holder of the Seleçao, starting in January, when Tite’s cycle is over and the CBF has looked for a new coach. And this is the same scenario and conception shared by a row of Premier League clubs, who have already knocked on his door, convinced that he is a full-back who can make a difference internationally.

If Barça has financial muscle for next summer and decides to invest a significant part in the right back to end the debates, Vanderson is, without a doubt, a consensus name in the technical secretariat.


The possible hiring of Vanderson would refer to that of his compatriot, Dani Alves, who arrived in the summer of 2008 after paying 35 million euros to Sevilla, and become, thanks to his extraordinary and sustainable performance, the best right-back in the history of Barça. That time, the Blaugrana management did not go with mid-level footballers and went looking for one who had everything to succeed.

Because of how clubs like United or Newcastle are pressing, entering fully into the bid for Vanderson requires the commitment of the Brazilian player to want to stop at the Camp Nou. He would therefore have to follow in the footsteps of what Raphinha did last summer, who ignored all offers from the Premier.

Like all Monaco players, there is no termination clause in his contract, which expires in it is mandatory to sit down to negotiate with the ‘rouge et blanc’ sports management.

Vanderson is a deep lane, with many offensive resources and a privileged physique: He is tall for a winger (he measures 1.80m), fast, strong and with great physical power. He landed in Ligue-1 in the last winter market from Gremio, which had just fallen to the Brasileirao Series B.

He is completely adapted to French football and, although he is having a hard time getting up to speed at the start of the season, He has the full confidence of his coach, the Belgian Philippe Clement, who, together with the club’s owners, stopped his departure last August. when Mateu Alemany asked for a price, just like Manchester United did.
