Corinthians have officially announced the signing of former Fenerbahce full-back Roberto Carlos.
The move to the Sao Paulo side follows weeks of reports that the 36-year-old was to return to his country at the beginning of 2010.
These claims came to fruition today as Corinthians announced that Roberto Carlos will be presented on January 4th.
Corinthians also state that the former Brazilian international, who won 125 caps in the left-back position, will be brought on as an 89th-minute substitute by Fenerbahce on December 23rd against Altay for his final appearance.
According to the Spanish press, Carlos stated this week that, although he is eager to join Corinthians, he would also relish a return to Real Madrid.
