Having made his professional debut at SL Benfica, alongside Bernardo Silva among others, Ivan Cavaleiro spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga. During his time in Spain, he made 18 league appearances and scored two goals. Ivan Cavaleiro has represented Portugal at all youth levels, and was called up to the senior squad twice in 2014-2015, before taking part in the Euro U21s in June, where he made the final with Bernardo Silva.
Statement by Vadim Vasilyev, Vice-President & CEO of AS Monaco
"We are very pleased to welcome Ivan Cavaleiro. This young forward with huge potential has just reached the final of the Euro U21s with Portugal and already has several call-ups to the senior squad. His experience in La Liga last season and his understanding with Bernardo Silva will help him settle in quickly at AS Monaco."
