Botafogo snaps up Seedorf
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Sports Network) - Clarence Seedorf secured a move to Botafogo on Sunday, signing a two-year contract with the Brazilian side.
The longtime AC Milan standout ended a 10-year stay at the San Siro this summer and has reportedly been given the most lucrative contract ever handed to a foreign player in Brazil.
"Botafogo have formalized a contract with the Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf, who is 36," a club statement read. "Seedorf has signed a deal for two years with Botafogo.
"It is the biggest contract for a foreigner made by a Brazilian football club."
Seedorf joins a Botafogo side that sits in eighth place in the Campeonato with three wins from six games.
