Luizao to sign in January, will sign contract within days



Sao Paulo defender Luizao will sign for West Ham United in January, with his contract with the Hammers set to be finalized within days, according to gazetaesportiva.com.

The 20-year-old defender will sign a pre-contract agreement with West Ham United within days to seal the move as soon as his contract with Sao Paulo expires in January.

The report claims that Sao Paulo’s proposal to keep 15% of Luizao’s economic rights, in addition to receiving 1 million euros [£876,000]if the player achieved the goals stipulated in the contract, it was not accepted.

“The representative of West Ham who led the negotiation stopped being answered by the board of São Paulo. The proposal of São Paulo to keep 15% of the economic rights of Luizão, in addition to receiving 1 million euros, if the player achieved the goals stipulated in the contract, it was not accepted”, said the journalist Marcelo Baseggio quoted by gazetaesportiva.com.

“Thus, there was no other option for Luizão than to sign a pre-contract with West Ham, without any financial compensation in São Paulo, to move to English football at the end of his association with the Tricolor.

“The pre-contract formulated by West Ham is being analyzed by the legal department of Luizão’s staff. The expectation is that the defender will sign the documents in the coming days to seal his transfer.”

It’s nice to see West Ham United adding some quality youngsters to their squad, especially in one of the team’s current problem areas.

Craig Dawson and Angelo Ogbonna are now 32 and 34 years old respectively and are at the end of their West Ham United careers.

Luizao will provide a fresh challenge to David Moyes’ backline and, while largely unproven, looks like a smart transfer from the Irons.

Signing the Brazilian for free confirms all that and removes any money transfer issues that might have come if things didn’t work out.

The 20-year-old is a classic South American defender who is fiery, aggressive and loves to make a tackle.

Definitely one to keep an eye on in the future, whether or not he can walk into the London Stadium and make an instant impact remains to be seen.

However, this business looks like a West Ham expert.
