MILAN (AP) — Inter Milan has completed the signing of Gabriel Barbosa, known as Gabigol, from Brazilian club Santos. Gabigol signed a five-year contract on Tuesday, the day of his 20th birthday.

Italian media reported a transfer fee of €28 million ($31.2 milion). The forward, described as "the new Neymar" by some pundits in Brazil, has scored two goals in four appearances for Brazil's senior side and also helped its Olympic team to a first ever gold medal in Rio de Janeiro.
