Flamengo have signed Arsenal’s left-back André Santos in a two-year contract, after he passed the medical this Thursday.

André Santos managed to cancel his contract with Arsenal, despite early reports that he would join Flamengo on a one-year loan deal. The left-back will own 50% of his own rights, while Flamengo will own the rest.

The negotiations advanced quickly as the international transfer window in Brazil will close on July 20.

As part of the agreement, Flamengo are expected to let either João Paulo or Ramón leave the club, so there will not be too many left-backs in the squad.

The official annoucement is expected to happen on Monday, André Santos has previously worked with current Flamengo manager Mano Menezes at Corinthians.
