Less than two weeks before the opening of the signing window, Cruzeiro announced the agreement with defender Luís Felipe, 21 years old. The player was at PSV, from the Netherlands. He signs until December 2024.
The player was in Belo Horizonte since last weekend, undergoing medical examinations to sign the contract with Cruzeiro. The player’s economic rights will be divided between the mining club and PSV. The defender can be registered to enter the field from July 18, when the signing window in Brazilian football opens.
Luís Felipe has been at PSV since the second half of 2019, but has not been able to establish himself in the first team. He played for just one game. In team B, which plays in the Second Division of the Netherlands, he made 34 appearances in the last two seasons.

Luís Felipe was recruited through a nomination to Cruzeiro. Recently, Paulo André, Ronaldo’s right-hand man in the sports direction, was in Eindhoven, Holland, to visit PSV’s facilities. In Brazil, the boy only played for the base categories of Coritiba.

At the moment, Pezzolano plays in a three-default scheme, with Zé Ivaldo, Lucas Oliveira and Eduardo Brock being starters. Wagner Leonardo and Geovane Jesus are other options, with the latter playing more as a winger on the right. Pedrão, who is even more integrated with the U-20, has also been used in recent games.
