According to the LA Galaxy, Christmas has come a couple days early. The club has announced the signing of three young stars from Brazil. Alex, a 21-year-old left-sided player, Juninho, a 20-year-old central midfielder and Leonardo, a 21-year-old central defender all join the western conference champs on loan from Sao Paulo FC.

All three players will be officially added to the Galaxy roster upon the receipt of their P1 visas and International Transfer Clearances (ITC).

Sao Paulo is famous for their youth academy which is rated as one of the world’s best, having produced players such as current and former Brazilian internationals Adriano, Cafu, Denilson, Julio Baptista and Kaka.

I’ve heard several times that these three are very talent prospects for Bruce Arena. One of the three, Alex, has experience with the U-20 National team for Brazil.

These kind of additions should help LA out in the coming year as they will have a packed schedule with CONCACAF Champions League games and US Open Cup games.
