Newcastle linked with a move for Monza left-back Carlos Augusto

Newcastle United are setting their sights on securing the talents of Carlos Augusto, who currently shines as a star player for Monza. With an impressive background, having played 32 official games and scoring a goal for Corinthians, as well as winning the Campeonato Paulista twice in 2018 and 2019, Carlos is undoubtedly a promising talent in Brazilian football.

At just 24 years of age, Carlos has already made a name for himself as a versatile player, primarily occupying the position of left-back, but also displaying the ability to excel as a centre-back in both a four-man and three-man defense. His performances have not gone unnoticed, as he was even included in the Brazil U20 squad for the prestigious 2019 South American U-20 Championship.

In the current season, he has featured in 29 official games, impressively scoring five goals and providing five assists, showcasing his attacking prowess from a defensive position. As a result, scouts from various clubs across Europe have been closely monitoring his performances, with his Transfermarkt value now estimated at 8 million euros.
