The transfer window has always been entertaining with drama between clubs and extortionate fees. And now it’s even better with every club creating hilarious and sometimes even bizarre videos to announce their new signings.
And Nantes may have stolen the show this Summer by making a video using video game phenomenon Fortnite to announce the signing of central midfielder Lucas Evangelista.
The 23-year-old Brazilian has signed on a five-year-deal from Serie A club, Udinese in what appears to be a free transfer.

The announcement features a created in-game character which is supposed to be Nantes coach Miguel Cardoso with the gamertag ‘Coach Miguel’. The gaffer parachutes into the game to chase two offer characters dressed as football players.
During his chase, Miguel runs onto an artificial football pitch in the game and scores into the empty net before catching up to his targets. He then walks through a door which opens to reveal the club’s new midifelder.

It was an announcement video that would make many world-famous footballers jealous including Antoine Griezmann and Dele Alli who are very open about their love for the game, the former even performed a dance from the game when he scored in the World Cup final.
Harry Kane played over 100 games of Fortnite during his time in Russia, it certainly didn’t hinder his World Cup performance as he went on to win the Golden Boot trophy for the tournament.
Kane has regularly appeared on Alli’s Twitch streams of the game, along with England teammates Kieran Tripper and Harry Maguire. With footballers having a lot of down time in between training, Fortnite is the perfect way for them to unwind while also remaining competitive.
