The Colorado Rapids signed Brazilian midfielder Max Alves on Thursday to a four-year deal with a club option for a fifth.

Alves, signed from Flamengo in Brazil’s Serie A, will occupy an U22 player slot. Alves is 20 years old.

“Max is an athletic, technical midfielder who at his young age already has experience playing for one of the biggest clubs in South America,” Rapids general manager Pádraig Smith said. “We’re excited to add a player of his quality and potential to our group heading into next season.”

Alves appeared 10 times for the Rio de Janeiro side, including two appearances in the Copa do Brasil and two in the 2021 Campeonato Carioca. He made his professional debut with the club earlier in the year. He was loaned to Serie A club Cuiabá in September and registered 15 appearances and recorded one goal.
