Cruzeiro confirm the deal to sign De Arrascaeta
Cruzeiro have taken advantage of Internacional’s delay and completes the transfer of Giorgian De Arrascaeta.
Internacional had already agreed terms with the player on November and thought they finally got their man when an investment fund agreed to help with the transfer. But a delay in completing the exchange of documents would’ve let them down and Cruzeiro acted fast to get a deal done. Club doctor Sérgio Freire Júnior will travel to Uruguay for the player’s medical and De Arrascaeta should arrive in Belo Horizonte on Wednesday. Valdir Barbosa, who traveled to Uruguay as instructed by Cruzeiro president Gilvan, told Superesportes MG: “Internacional were firmly in the business. Now I can say that De Arrascaeta is of Cruzeiro. Signs a contract for five seasons.”
