Rodrigo Caio was linked with Milan, Roma, Lazio and Napoli, but the Sao Paulo defender has officially joined Flamengo.
The 25-year-old centre-back has been on the radar of several Serie A clubs over the last couple of years.
It was believed January would be the right moment for him to finally make the switch to Europe and Italy.
However, Flamengo announced this weekend that a deal had formally been done.
Rodrigo Caio signed a contract to December 2023 and it’s believed the cost of the operation was €5m.
