Arthur Caike signs for Cruzeiro
At 28 years of age, the striker arrives at the Minas Gerais team after starring for Bahia in 2019 and 2020, having made a total of 54 matches for Tricolor and finding the back of the net nine times.
Arthur Caíke, who in 2014 wore the Flamengo shirt, also had a good time in his career playing for Chapecoense, in 2017 and 2018. In Raposa, the striker will have the great challenge of helping the team to return to the elite of Brasileirão.
It’s reported that the striker is a personal reinforcement requested by Enderson Moreira for his side’s attack.
The coach’s preferred name. On arrival in Belo Horizonte, last Saturday night, Arthur spoke for the first time as a new player for Cruzeiro and mentioned what he can add to the team in terms of quality.

The player, who had been physically conditioning in Curitiba, while waiting for the outcome of the negotiations, was excited about the arrival at Cruzeiro and mentioned his main characteristics.
“Better expectations. Strength, good kick, speed and a little more. I will always try to improve on that and my all-round game in general”
Arthur Caíke will be on loan until the end of Serie B, at the end of January. As it stands currently, there is no provision in the loan agreement for a future purchase of the player. A definitive assignment would have to be settled later on into his loan stint. For now, the objective remains to help Cruzeiro return to the Brasileirão.
Cruzeiro’s next game for Serie B is scheduled for next Sunday, against Figueirense.
