    ESTELI, Nicaragua -- Real Esteli is strengthening its squad in advance of upcoming domestic league and CONCACAF Champions League campaigns.  The Nicaraguan side has signed three Brazilian players in an effort to boost its chances of winning an eighth consecutive league title, as well as progress to the Champions League’s knockout rounds for the first time.

    Defender Douglas De Sousa Ferreira, who arrives from Vietnam’s Dong Nai, as well as defender Alan Kardek and midfielder Leandro Teófilo Santos have been added to an already accomplished roster.

    Another defender, Yader Balladares, joins “El Tren del Norte” after spending his entire career with clubs in Costa Rica, including Saprissa and Cartagines.  The 26-year-old Nicaraguan is a naturalized Costa Rican.

    Real Estelí commences its domestic campaign on August 3 against Juventus Managua and for days later welcomes the USA’s Sporting Kansas City to the Estadio Independencia for their Champions League encounter.
