It has been widely reported in recent days, and this morning it was finally confirmed. 26-year-old Brazilian Paulo Miranda is joining FC Red Bull Salzburg and signing a contract until 31 May 2019.
After the central defender passed a range of medicals in recent days, the last formality – signing a transfer deal with his former club FC Sao Paulo - was completed today to finish the deal.
Christoph Freund, the Red Bulls’ head of football, is very pleased, saying: “Paulo is exactly the type of player we have been looking for and is an important building block for our defence. We have been keeping an eye on him for a long time and we know all about his quality.”
