Brazilian Isael Barbosa to join JDT?

Malaysia Super League champions, Johor Darul Ta’zim FC are reportedly looking to bring in Brazilian midfielder Isael Barbosa ahead of the new season.

The 30-year-old former FC Kairat player announced that he is looking for a new challenge after five years in the Kazakhstan Premier League, while JDT are said to be keen on bolstering their squad in preparation of the 2018 AFC Champions League.

The buzz on social media seems to suggest that it’s only a matter of time before an official announcement is made in regards to the player joining the club.

If the transfer does indeed go through, Barbosa would serve as the perfect replacement for Fernando Elizari, who has returned home after completing his loan spell at the club.

As of now, JDT have only signed two import players for the upcoming season; defender Maurício dos Santos Nascimento and midfielder Aaron Niguez, who is the older brother of Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez.
