Brazil striker Souza joins Sao Paulo
Rio de Janeiro: Brazil striker Diego Souza has joined Sao Paulo from their Brazilian top-flight football rivals Sport Recife.
The 32-year-old on Sunday signed a two-year contract with an option of a third year after Sao Paulo agreed to a three million-euro (about $3.6 million) transfer fee, the six-time Serie A champions said.
"He will arrive in Sao Paulo in the coming days to undergo a medical before being integrated into the squad," Sao Paulo said in a statement on their official website.
Souza scored 57 goals in 173 matches for Sport, whom he joined from Fluminense in 2016.
The former Benfica player has been capped seven times for Brazil's national team and holds the record for the fastest goal ever scored by a Brazilian player in an international match.
He achieved the feat against Australia last June, finding the net just 11 seconds after the opening whistle in Brazil's 4-0 victory in Melbourne.
