RB Leipzig have signed 18-year-old Luan Candido from Brazilian side Palmeiras, the Bundesliga club have announced.

The left-back will make the move to Germany in the summer after having agreed a contract until 2023.


Candido has played eight games for Brazil's under-20 national team, but is yet to make an appearance for Palmeiras' first team.

The youngster is the second summer signing that RB Leipzig have announced ahead of the 2019/20 season. 'Die Roten Bullen' have also signed Hannes Wolf from their sister club Red Bull Salzburg.
