We’ve seen some extravagant announcements of new signings in recent times, as clubs’ social media teams look to outdo each other.
The latest contender comes via Ligue 1 club Nantes, who have used the Fortnite video game to cook up a very clever clip to announce the arrival of Lucas Evangelista from Udinese.
The video features the Nantes manager, Miguel Cardoso, as a character in the game, who runs after two players before opening a door to reveal the Brazilian midfielder with the words “Ben vimdo” (‘welcome’ in Portuguese).

Although we imagine Antoine Griezmann is rather jealous he’s not the first footballer to star in his beloved video game…
The 23-year-old Evangelista joins Udinese on a five-year-deal, with the club hoping to improve on last season’s 14th placing in the table.
