Brazilian outfit Cruzeiro have confirmed that forward Marcelo Moreno has completed his transfer to Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Ukrainian team will pay nine million euros to land the Bolivian, with Cruzeiro receiving 40% of that outlay. A group of Spanish investors who own the transfer rights to the player receive 50% of the fee with the remaining 10% going to Moreno.

Cruzeiro spokesman Joao Marcos Dias confirmed the transfer on club website, adding that the 20-year-old´s recent visit to Donetsk was crucial to the deal going ahead after he had rejected their initial approach, he said: "After visiting the club last week, the player accepted the offer and inked a five-year contract."
