Who is ASM’s latest recruit?

AS Monaco has reached an agreement with Atletico de Madrid for 23-year-old midfielder Caio Henrique Oliveira Silva who will play for the team on a five-year contract.
The Red and White’s newest team member, Caio Henrique, is a Brazilian midfielder who came out of Santos FC Academy and was recruited by Atletico de Madrid in 2016 at the tender age of 18.
Soon after, he was loaned back to his native country to gain a bit of experience and playing time where he played on the Brazilian Under 23 International team in 2019. His team, Fluminense FC, went to the quarterfinals of the Copa Sudamericana, and he had a large part in getting them there.
Before he landed in Monaco, Caio had played almost 80 professional games and 20 games in under 20 and under 23 league games.
As for joining the Red and Whites, Caio Henrique is ready to make his mark, saying, “I am very happy to start this new adventure with AS Monaco. I’m joining a very ambitious club that is internationally recognised and respected for its history and track record. I am impatient to join my teammates but also to play in the French league which is very popular in Brazil.”
AS Monaco Vice-President and CEO Oleg Petrov has welcomed the young player, recognising his talents and clocking him as a good fit.
“We are delighted to welcome Caio Henrique to AS Monaco, whose arrival is part of our desire to strengthen the competitiveness of the first team,” Mr Petrov said in a club statement. “Spotted at a very young age by a top European club, Caio has developed his qualities and acquired significant experience in Brazil by playing nearly one hundred matches at the highest national and international level. He will find at AS Monaco all the elements necessary to continue his progress and help the club to achieve its goals.”
