Bayer Leverkusen´s search around South America has resulted in the signing of 20-year-old midfielder Renato Soares de Oliveira Augusto from Flamengo.

Leverkusen had been searching for a new midfielder in Brazil for several weeks and they are happy with their capture, even if he was harder to sign than expected.

"They were very difficult and complex negotiations with Flamengo and a lot of praise goes to our general manager Michael Reschke who was able to conclude the transfer," said Bayer business manager Wolfgang Holzhauser on the club´s official website.
