Serie A side sign Angola prodigy

Italian side Cagliari have confirmed the signing of 18-year-old Angolan right-winger Zito André Sebastião Luvumbo from Primeiro de Agosto for a fee of around US$1.5 million.

The 2002 born winger had been linked to numerous clubs this summer, but Cagliari evidently beat out the other clubs. 

Luvumbo turned out for Angola at the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil, impressing as Angola fell to South Korea in the Round of 16.

Zito was also called up for the Under-20 COSAFA Cup, that took place in December, as Angola got knocked out in the semi-finals.

The winger went on trial with Manchester United last year.

Cagliari finished 14th in Serie A last season.
