Luiz Henrique, the youngster who came from nothing, is now the most expensive player in Brazilian football. This is a source of pride for both me and my family.
Now it’s about continuing to work hard and doing everything to help Botafogo,” said Luiz Henrique, who arrived in Rio de Janeiro with his family. The most expensive signing in the history of Brazilian football (20 million euros, over R$ 106 million), the player is already registered and could be included by coach Tiago Nunes in the squad for the classic against Flamengo on Wednesday (7) at Maracanã, for the 7th round of the Campeonato Carioca.
The forward, who was with Real Betis in Spain, has reached an agreement with the Rio de Janeiro team that may see him leave Alvinegro for Lyon, the French club owned by the Botafogo SAF owner, in mid-2024 or early 2025.
