Corinthians president Andres Sanchez has confirmed that big spending Russian side Anzhi have signed highly sought after midfielder Jucilei Da Silva.

The Makhachkala club have paid a fee of €10 million for the Brazilian international, who will join fellow new boy Roberto Carlos in Russia.

The Timao will only receive a small part of the fee due to the 22-year-old being part-owned, and as yet the Dagi haven't announced any information on the terms of contract.

"We get 30 per cent of the deal, as the transition of the player involved several businesses. The total amount of the transfer will be €10m, and I am confident that this was a bargain," Andres Sanchez told O Globo.

Corinthians signed Jucilei for €2m when he made his debut in 2009 and has since played over 100 games, scoring six goals. Last year the talented youngster was attracting the attention of the likes of Juventus.
