According to manutd.com, future Manchester United star Rodrigo Possebon will join Portuguese side Sporting Braga on a season long loan for the 2009-10 season.

The young Brazilian, who was signed 18 months ago from Brazilian club Internacional, is joining Braga as part of his grooming with Man United.

Last year, Possebon made a total of eight appearances for the Red Devils, but because of the depth of the team's central midfielders, Possebon mainly was a member of the reserve team for the season.

After joining Braga, Possebon told reporters that he loved Braga's iconic Estádio Municipal, as he claimed that he never saw a stadium that was quite like this, and he also can't wait for the season to begin.
