Loan star
The 17-year-old Tiago Lopes, better known as Rabiola, will be loaned to his previous club for the 2007/08 campaign, having helped the Guimaraes outfit return to the Portuguese Liga last term. The youngster scored once in five appearances towards the end of a successful season, and the Portuguese Under-18 international is promising to give his best to succeed at Porto. "I will only rest when I wear Porto's jersey for real," he said. Rabiola is the champions' fourth summer recruit after Lino, Fernando and Edgar, having been acquired for an undisclosed fee.
