Bucaspor, new soccer team of the Turkish premier division, have signed Angolan striker Mateus Alberto Contreiras Goncalves, known as Manucho, from La Liga side Real Valladolid.

Manucho joined Izmir side on loan, the club said.

He moved from Angolan team Petro Atletico to England's Manchester United in January 2008. However, he was loaned out to Greek side Panathinaikos for the remainder of the 2007-08 season due to issues with obtaining a UK work permit. He returned to club but could appear only in one game and then he moved to Hull City on loan until the end of 2008-09 season. Manucho joined Real Valladolid in July 2009. He is also a member of the Angolan national team.
