Player arrives from Benfica on a two-year deal until 30 June 2022
Barça and Benfica have agreed to the transfer of futsal player André Henriques Nunes Coelho, a 26-year-old Portuguese international who is arriving on a two-year deal until 30 June 2022, pending a medical examination in the next few days.
Born in 1993 in Viseu (Portugal), he has won a league and two cups in three seasons at Benfica, and was part of the Portuguese side that won the European Championship in 2018. A right-footed defender, he is experienced and versatile, including a fine shot when required.
“I am very happy and excited to be joining the best club in the world” he said. Being part of the Barça family is a dream come true for me. I can’t wait to meet my new team-mates, the staff, and to start competing. I’m looking forward to playing in the Palau and meeting the Dracs and other fans. I want to win things at this club and bring plenty of joy to everyone.”
