Promising Brazilian left-back Jose
Rodolfo Pires Ribeiro, otherwise known as Dodo, is to join AS
Roma from Corinthians.
Dodo, 20, who has been dubbed 'the “new Roberto Carlos' by
Italian and Brazilian media, announced the transfer on Twitter.
"“I'm going to Italy, to Roma... now is the moment to
prepare myself for the new season and give my best to make up
for lost time," he said.
Dodo was once linked with a move to Manchester United but
his hopes of joining the English Premier League club were
scuppered by a knee injury.
