Seems like Corinthians moves in this transfer market aren’t quite finished yet. After Paolo Guerrero and Juan Manuel Martínez, Corinthians football director Roberto de Andrade confirmed the club’s interest in getting PSG’s best player in Ligue 1 last season.
Following Ezequiel Lavezzi arrival and Ibrahimovic close to sign his contract with the Parisian side, Nenê seems to be left out in the cold even though he was the most consistent PSG player in the 2011-2012 season. Another factor is that the player wants to get back to Brazil, and is trying to reach an agreement with PSG to leave the club for free or for a minor transfer fee considering how his price tag went up after his impressive performances.
For now, Corinthians hadn’t made a bid according to Roberto de Andrade, but a close friend of Nenê declared the player’s interest in getting back to Brazil already planning to retire. He’d be a direct successor to Alex spot in Corinthians midfield, acting as an free kick specialist and providing balls to feed their new attack composed of Paolo Guerrero and Juan Manuel Martínez.
It’d be pretty difficult, but for Corinthians it’d be another great value. Even though Nenê is entering his 30s and seems to be close on decline, if they manage to get him for a low price the return on the field would be spectacular, as they’ll miss speedy players who can also dictate tempo; something they unfortunately didn’t get with Alex in his brief cameo, but might get in Nenê instead. And in the future when he become less useful, who knows, a sheikh might come and buy him too!
