Cruzeiro is awaiting permission from Corinthians to sign goalkeeper Cassio

Cruzeiro is awaiting permission from Corinthians to sign goalkeeper Cassio

Cruzeiro is just waiting for Corinthians to release goalkeeper Cassio to make a proposal to hire the professional official. The Celestial Team intends to sign a three-year contract with the player and is awaiting Timao’s decision regarding the future of the athlete, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

According to O Tempo Sports columnist Samuel Venancio, Cruzeiro was offered a bonus within the SAF’s salary cap. “Crueseiro wants a three-year contract with a salary that Cassio likes. What is the deal? Corinthians releases the player. He is a great idol in the history of Corinthians. Will Corinthians agree to release Cassio in the middle of the year? If” Corinthians accepts the release, and Cassio will be Cruzeiro’s goalkeeper in the window As of July 10.”

Despite Raposa’s intention, Corinthians are inclined not to give up so easily on a contract renewal with one of the greatest stars in the club’s history – from June onwards, Cassio can now sign a pre-contract with any team.
Corinthians management is aware of Cruzeiro’s proposal, but has not yet spoken to the goalkeeper about staying at the club.


The 36-year-old is facing an uncomfortable situation at Timão after losing his starting position to Carlos Miguel, opening the door to a potential transfer. Cassio retired for the first time since 2016, after 712 matches in a Corinthians shirt.

Number 12 is the Corinthians player with the most trophies won by the club, with a total of 9 titles. Among them are the 2012 Copa Libertadores and the Club World Cup in the same year, in addition to two Brazilian championships (2015 and 2017).

Goalkeeping at Raposa

Since the departure of Rafael Cabral last April, Anderson (26 years old) has assumed the main role in Cruzeiro’s goal, after conceding seven goals in the last 6 matches. Gabriel Grando, who arrived at the negotiations that led Cabral to Gremio, is also an option for Rapoza, but has yet to make his debut in a Celeste shirt.
