It’s official – Inter Milan have completed the signing of Brazilian wingback Carlos Augusto from Monza.
The Nerazzurri confirm the 24-year-old’s arrival in an official announcement. This summer has seen Inter reconfigure the team in wide areas more than a bit.
On the right flank, Raoul Bellanova departed. Ex-Juventus and Fiorentina veteran Juan Cuadrado arrived to take his place.
And now, the Nerazzurri have made a signing on the left side as well as Brazilian wingback Augusto joins from Monza.
It is widely expected that he will take the place of Robin Gosens, who should soon complete a move to Union Berlin in the Bundesliga.
Inter Milan Seal Carlos Augusto Signing From Monza
Augusto arrives on a one-year loan from Monza, with a purchase option that becomes an obligation under certain conditions, the statement reads.
The total value of the deal is reportedly around €13 million.
Meanwhile, Augusto has signed a five-year contract with Inter until the end of June 2028. The 24-year-old will earn around €2.2 million net per season, reports suggest.
Augusto was one of the real breakout talents of the Monza team that finished in midtable last season, their first ever campaign in Serie A.
Having been a key figure for the Brianzoli in Serie B, he made the step up to the top flight seamlessly. Across the campaign, Augusto made six goals and five assists for Monza.
Therefore, it is little surprise to see the Brazilian making the jump to a bigger club. Augusto will replace a stylistically similar player in the form of Gosens.
The German joined Inter from Atalanta in the January transfer window of 2022. However, he never quite found his best form from his La Dea days in a Nerazzurri shirt.
Therefore, Gosens will try to reignite his form in the Bundesliga.
And Augusto will look to bring his form from Monza to Inter, giving the Nerazzurri the kind of incisive presence on both sides of the ball that is vital from the wingbacks in coach Simone Inzaghi’s system.
Augusto will back up and provide competition for Federico Dimarco down the flank.
