The left-back Natanael has signed with Ludogorets of Bulgaria and is already in the European team. According to information from the press office of the player, he has closed a three-year contract and does not play for Atlético-PR any more. The left-back was hired by the Hurricane in early 2014 and had renewed his bond for three years.
Hired by Cuiabá in 2014, where he excelled in Serie C of the Brazilian Championship, Natanael arrived as a stranger in Atletico-PR, but became a starter in the position even during the campaign in the Libertadores. He further strengthened his position as the main name during last year's Brasileirao, but this year he was under pressure from Sidcley, who starred in a 2-1 win over Avaí in the final round.
In all, between official and friendly matches, Nathanael played 79 times in the red-black shirt. He had 31 wins, 17 draws and 31 losses. Scored a single goal - in a 7-0 victory over Nacional-PR, this year's Paranaense Championship.
