According to reports on Wednesday from Diario in Portugal, Liverpool have beaten Chelsea to the signing of 16 year old Toni Brito Silva Sa for E300,000 (£275,000).
The Guinean youngster is at Benfica, but Chelsea took him on trial while under the leadership of Scolari last December. Chelsea were ready to offer a 6 year contract to the player. The Stamford Bridge outfit have got themselves in trouble with FIFA after poaching youngsters after financial inducements and Liverpool have taken advantage of Chelsea’s transfer woes.
The youngster turned 16 a fortnight ago and the reds have cut a deal to bring the player to Anfield.
