Renato Augusto unveiled Corinthians


Renato Augusto has been officially unveiled as a Corinthians player following his transfer from Bayer Leverkusen.

The Brazilian signed a four year contract with the Club World Cup winners after they negotiated a deal estimated at €3.5 million for 50% of his economic rights last month.

Corinthians presented the player to the media at their training ground on Tuesday, where Renato revealed he is impressed with the club's structure.

The 24-year-old said: "I like what I've seen so far. The structure of the club is excellent, it goes without saying.

"Being a team that has won titles in recent years, I want to put my name in history."

Renato arrives at the Timão during a successful period for the club, following Brasileirão, Copa Libertadores and World title wins during the last two seasons.

Renato added: "The expectation of the fans will increase, we must make this a good year for the good moments to continue.

"Just look at the last year for Corinthians. I always say that a player is only remembered as a champion and I came here to put my name in history."

The Brazil international struggled for game time last season after sustaining a series of injuries but Renato insists he will be ready to play soon.

He concluded: "Today I'm physically fine and very close to my ideal. I'll ask the medical team to do a special job so I avoid injuries.

"I'm just needing match fitness. I hope I have the chance to play to get that rhythm and get ready for the Libertadores."

Renato spent four and a half seasons with Leverkusen after joining the Bundesliga outfit in a deal estimated at €10 million in 2008.
