After Everton introduced Cipollinha and directed the signing of Arturo Vidal, Flamengo are looking to finalize the deal to buy midfielder Wallace from Udinese. as I learned GoalNegotiations have progressed in the last hours and the red-black board is confident of a positive outcome.
On the Flamengo radar for at least two seasons, the 27-year-old midfielder joined the Udinese squad last week for the start of the European pre-season. From the start of the talks, which GE brought in for the first time, the Italian club has made it clear that any conversation will start only with a permanent exit proposal.
With Willian Arau, who left Robro Negro towards Fenerbahce, departing from Turkey for €3m, Flamengo leave Wallace’s arrival as a substitute. The board’s plan is to offer Dorival Júnior a quick replacement.
In addition to Wallace, Flamengo is still trying to sign Wendell and is waiting for Zenit to play in the Russian Super Cup final, which takes place on Saturday (09), in an attempt to advance in negotiations with the Russians. The idea of the red and black board is to get the steering wheel for free, using a FIFA clause that allows the player’s contract to be suspended.
Wendel believes he can obtain the release and does not intend to leave without Zenit’s consent, although he has the possibility of unilaterally suspending his contract. The player appreciates the good relationship he has with the Russians and the contract that runs until June 2025.
