Good it will advance his game. He will play in the Champions league every year and get important experience. He should be a good player on our 2010 team in south africa. And 2009 in the confederations cup.

I've been praying for this to finally happen. Adu is a very technically sound, finesse type of guy who should thrive in Europe where that style is supported. The MLS is just too physical for his style to really be successful. Looking forward to watching him in Champions League action this fall :cheers:

Almost seems like a lateral move - hopefully he won't be there too long and can move in with one of the big 3 leagues.

Alot of guys have used the Portugese and French leagues as springboards to the EPL, La Liga, Serie A, etc. Ronaldinho and Christiano Ronaldo come to mind. In the mean time, Freddie will get to learn from guys like Rui Costa and play Champions League competition (which league rival FC Porto won a few years back).

Freddie will be sold to a bigger club after his first or second season.
