Palermo have confirmed the signing of highly-rated Brazilian teenager Joao Pedro from Atletico Mineiro.
Reports in the Italian press suggest that Palermo have paid around 6million euros to sign the 18-year-old, whose full name is Joao Pedro Geraldino dos Santos Galvao.
"I don't remember his name, I only know that he cost me a lot of money, yes I've signed him," joked Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini.
Pedro caught the eye of Palermo after progressing quickly through the youth ranks with homeland club Mineiro.
He began to establish himself as a regular starter for Mineiro earlier this year, while he has previously represented Brazil at Under 17 level.
