Alberto, who will be the first Brazilian to play for Dinamo, agreed the move after clinching the Brazilian championship earlier this month. Dinamo were not the only club interested, with interest also believed to have come from other Russian sides and from Turkey.
The 27-year-old scored 12 goals for Santos in 2002 and was a key man in the title victory against SC Corinthians. He scored the first goal in the 2-0 first-leg victory but missed the second leg through suspension, which Santos won 3-2 to claim a 5-2 aggregate victory.
Alberto will join Dinamo as a free agent. The club, who finished eighth in 2002, have a new board in place and it is reported that the budget for the team will be vastly superior to the average Premier-Liga side.
