I am very excited that we have identified and signed such a special talent. Fabio is a very creative player that will bring high quality and versatility to our attacking play.
We welcome Fabio and his family to our club and are looking forward to starting work with him ahead of the new season.

He also made five appearances in Europe last term, including two Champions League group stage games and four appearances in the Europa League knockout stages.
