El Leganés announces the signing of goalkeeper André Grandi

The pepinero club has made official the arrival of the young Brazilian keeper, with an Italian passport, which he signs until 2021.


El Leganés made official this afternoon the signing of Italo-Brazilian goalkeeper André Grandi, 22-year-old goalkeeper from Cartagena, although last season he played for Inter de Madrid, of Segunda División B, in which he played 21 official matches between the League and Copa. The goalkeeper, as AS advanced, has been signed for almost a month, but the club has not communicated until today.

Grandi signs until 2021 (two seasons) and arrives at Butarque to initially be the third goalkeeper of the pepineros. By being less than 23 years old, he may not occupy a first team record. That is, the Leganés does not discard, if it remains, give the subsidiary's record, as, for example, happened with Lunin last year.

Deberá earn the position The goalkeeper is not guaranteed 100% that will be the third occupant of the goal Pepper It must be won during the preseason, a preparation period that will serve as a test for Mauricio Pellegrino and his technical staff to test if he is able to take on the challenge or if, on the contrary, he should look for a destination to grow beyond Butarque.

In their offices, they do not rule out that they leave on loan to a lower category team (preferably Second Division) where they can pick up rhythm and minutes, experience and solvency.

Ya was an option in January Highlighted by its size and height (measures 1.93), Grandi was trained at Porto Alegre International, where he came to play in his subsidiary. In the past winter market his name was already shuffled in the Leganés to supply Jon Ander Serantes, but his extra-community passport (then did not have the Italian nationality) stopped his signing. The Lega had all the seats occupied.

Now, without that administrative problem, the club has valued positively the option to incorporate him, either for his immediate presence in the team, or for a medium to long-term future.
