According to Daniel Bortoletto, the columnist from the Brazilian website Lance!, it is certain that Yoandy Leal will wear the jersey of Cucine Lube Civitanova, Italy, in the next season. Allegedly, Lube sent a better offer to Sada Cruzeiro player than the Russian side Zenit Kazan, their main rivals to hire him.

The contract of the Cuban-born Leal with Cruzeiro expires at the end of the season. During the last six seasons, which he spent in the Brazilian powerhouse, the outside hitter won the FIVB Club World Championship three times, South American Club Championship three times, and Brazilian championship four times.

Individually, he earned the MVP award in the FIVB Club World Championship once, Brazilian Superliga two times, and South American Championship two times.

Since he got a permission from the FIVB to change the sports nationality, Leal will be at the disposal of Brazil national team next year.

Recall what he said on this topic in an interview to our website.
