AC Milan have snapped up two new Uruguayan talents, Mathias Cardacio and Tabare Viudez.
They underwent medicals at the Milanello training ground over the weekend and will officially be presented to the media on Monday.
Cardacio signs from Nacional Montevideo and is a 21-year-old creative midfielder with a fierce strike from distance.
"I am similar to Andrea Pirlo," the new arrival told Tuttosport. He hit the headlines with his performances in the Under-19 World Cup in 2007.
Former Defensor Sporting Montevideo man Viudez is still only 19 and is considered one of Uruguay's most promising talents for the future.
He was the youngest player in the Under-20 World Cup, aged just 18, and has a left foot reminiscent of Alvaro Recoba.
