Guinness World Record Holder Sebastian 'El Loco' Abreu Has Signed For His 30th Club Aged 44

Sebastian Abreu is continuing his quest to go down as the greatest footballing journeyman after signing for his 30th club at the ripe old age of 44.

The former Uruguay international has agreed terms with Brazilian side Athletic Club and will put pen to paper before playing in the Campeonato Mineiro.

After coming through the ranks at Defensor, the striker made his debut for the club in 1995 and has gone on to play for clubs in Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Greece Ecuador, Israel, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and his native Uruguay.

In 2017, he broke the Guinness World Record for the most professional football clubs played for when he signed a deal with Chilean Primera División side Audax Italiano.

The previous holder was German goalkeeper Lutz Pfannestiel but Abreu knocked him off his perch and has played for a further three clubs since then, with a fourth on the way.

Aptly nicknamed 'El Loco', Abreu has also been capped 70 times by Uruguay and won the Copa America in 2011.

According to his lengthy Wikipedia page, Abreu has scored 349 goals in 717 appearances across his 27-year career.

He also had brief spells in charge of both Santa Tecla and Boston River as a player-manager.
