Sharjah Club poised to complete signing of striker Luciano.

President of Brazilian club Sadd terms deal a 'risk' for the UAE side

Sharjah Sharjah Club are said to be in negotiation with 22-year-old Brazilian striker Roberto Brito Luciano aka 'Robinho' from Vasco Da Gama, according to a source at the club.

CEO Ebrahim Al Nimr was scheduled to meet the player and his agent Reinaldo Pita to thrash out a contract yesterday.

If the two parties agree, the former Vasco and Volto Redonda player will join his fellow countrymen Marcelo and Marcelinho to complete the club's three foreign player allowance.

Romeu de Castro, president of the lower league Brazilian club, Sadd, who spends the off-season in the UAE as an intermediary between players and clubs of both nations, said of the proposed: "It's a risk for Sharjah.

"He was released by Vasco after not making any difference to the first team after just eight appearances and two goals."

"He's young and trying to get his career going. He perhaps could make the difference in this league if he remains motivated," added Castro.

After a promising start with Volta Rendonda in the Carioca Division One he transferred to Vasco Da Gama in Serie B but never made the grade in a season when the club won promotion to Serie A, he was released on May 21.
