Caio Emerson Pereira Marques da Silva, or better known simply as 'Caio' in the football world and one of the most promising young Brazilian players at present, has signed for Granada CF until 2021. Caio (born in Sete Lagoas, Brazil in 1999) arrives at our club from Corinthians, where he has spent the last four years of his career.

Formed in the youth system of Cruzeiro, Caio played a leading role in attack during the last U17 Copa do Brasil, scoring seven goals in the competition. It was during this same competition in which the talented young player generated a lot of interest from leading clubs around Europe, before opting to join Granada CF.

Delighted to complete the move, alongside Granada CF vice president Kangning Wang, after penning his contract Caio Emerson enthused: "I'm really happy to have joined Granada CF. I'm in a great city and a club which will put all their facilities at my disposal, so that I can keep developing my career here and keep growing as a footballer."
