QPR to sign Samba star

QPR say they have reached a deal with Brazilian club Sao Paulo to make young striker Henrique manager Mark Hughes’ first signing at the club ahead of their FA Cup replay against the MK Dons (Rangers 4/5, draw 13/5. MK Dons 10/3 – Match Betting).

Sources suggest that the only stumbling block is whether or not he’ll move to Loftus Road on an 18-month loan or a permanent transfer which would cost the West Londoners around £5million.

The 20-year-old is seen as one of Brazil’s brightest stars and having won the player of the tournament award at the Under-20 World Cup in Columbia, undoubtedly has the talent to help Rangers (6/4 – To Be Relegated) in their fight against the drop.

Since replacing Neil Warnock, Mark Hughes has repeatedly stressed the need for the club to buy a new striker as only Wigan have netted less times this season.

It appears as if Hughes has gone all out to sign the prodigy and the Samba star says the former Wales manager was one of the major influences on him signing.

He told The Sun: “I know a lot of clubs are interested in me. But when I spoke to Mark Hughes and QPR, they made me feel very excited about their plans.

“The manager is known everywhere. He played for great clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona.

“As a striker, I know I can learn so much from him. I’ve always wanted to play in Europe and, for me, England has the most exciting league in the world,” he added.
