Kleberson: Flamengo bound
Brazilian side Flamengo have signed former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson on a one-year deal.
The World Cup winner was a free agent after leaving Turkish outfit Besiktas earlier this year and will undergo a medical at Flamengo before being unveiled to the media on Wednesday.
Kleberson will not be available to play this season for the five-times champions of Brazil as it is currently outside of the country's transfer window.
The 28-year-old was set to sign for Santos last month, but a deal collapsed because of a pay dispute between the player and his former employers Besiktas.
However the argument has now been settled - with Fifa ruling in favour of the club - and Kleberson is now available to sign for Flamengo.
His future club have struggled so far this season and are currently 14th in Brazil's 20-team league, with 26 games already having been played.
