The 18-year-old Magno is heralded as one of the best young prospects coming through in Brazil. A product of the Vasco da Gama youth academy, he made his first-team debut in June last year. Till date, he has featured 17 times for the senior side, scoring two goals and setting up one more.
Magno has also impressed for the Brazil U17 national side, scoring three goals in six matches, two of which came in the U17 FIFA World Cup. Able to play anywhere across the front three, he has prominently been used on the left flank.
