Official: Monza sign Corinthians talent

Serie B side Monza, owned by former Milan President Silvio Berlusconi, have officially signed Carlos Augusto from Corinthians.

It is a prestigious purchase for the team that was just promoted to Serie B from Italy’s third division.

According to Globoesporte, the deal is worth €4m, but Monza have only bought 40 per cent of the full-back’s rights.

That means any future sale would see Corinthians earn over half the sell-on fee.
