Manchester United midfielder Rodrigo Possebon has joined Sporting Braga on loan. Possebon, 20, will spend the entire next season with the Portuguese club where he will play in the Europa League. The Brazilian youngster, who joined United from Internacional in January 2008, started just three first-team games for the Red Devils last season "Rodrigo Possebon will spend the entire 2009/10 season on loan at Portuguese side Sporting Braga," read a club statement. "Due to the first team's wealth of central midfielders, Rodrigo found first-team opportunities hard to come by. "He spent the majority of the season in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reserves as the Reds won two cups and finished second in the Barclays Premier Reserve League (North)."
