About less than a year ago, I went on to write about Ronaldinho’s problems with Flamengo, and his on and off the pitch troubles. I even doubted that he could return to at least part of the form he showed at Milan, before getting back to Brazil, and also said that it’d too dumb to anyone to look for his services.
Boy, was I wrong!
Guys, unfortunately I don’t live off this blog. If you ever read my bio on this site, you’re aware I’m currently an Economics student, so I don’t have much spare time to dedicate here. Also, as I’m writing on WordPress, I don’t have AdSense or any other form of profiting off traffic, so my absences are (unfortunately) often. Hopefully I’ll manage one day to squeeze some time from my schedule to write a piece or two per day.
Still, relevant news? CBF’s Team of the Year was announced, and after the jump you’ll find the names.
Back in August this year, near the summer transfer window’s end, there were many rumors linking by-then Fluminense right-back prodigy Wallace to several European clubs in Italy and Chelsea back in England. It sounded as though those rumors were dead, but we’ve become aware that a move from Fluminense to London club Chelsea was in the making back in October and that such deal had Wallace moving in to England at the end of the Premier League season for 10m Euros – but Chelsea would only pay 60% of the alleged fee as they’ve gotten 40% of his rights from the Deco transfer to Flu.
But it seems that such move can be done earlier.
Hopefully you didn’t get scared by his picture. Anyway, the promising 18 years old right back has been getting attention from Italian clubs Napoli, Inter Milan and Juventus with the latter offering 5m euros for his services, while Chelsea was also rumored to be interested in the player, but as they currently own 40% of his rights they wouldn’t have to pay a huge amount of money. But things seem to be getting nicer for Fluminense fans.
I wonder if people ever learn from their mistakes. They spend a good amount of time regretting some of their moves following those bad decisions, and end up looking for a way to erase or at least get back to how it was before. It was much more “comfortable”, everybody loved you and you were adapted to it. You could even make some mistakes; people would overlook some of your failures because you’re not human; you’re an idol to millions of people. But when you had to take that shot, that slight move out of your comfort zone… You now want to get back to it. Badly. Continue reading
Rafael Sóbis loan deal with Fluminense ends at August this year. Until then, Fluminense has an 1st option clause on his contract if they want the player definitively, rumoured to be near €6m. That’s a money Fluminense currently doesn’t have; I guess no one has it. But they’re still fighting for him. Continue reading
