Ganso wants to move. Again.
Some people who follow the Brazilian Championship closely and don’t live in Brazil might be aware of that. I don’t know (yet) the profile of most readers in this blog, but I’ll assume that you haven’t heard anything about the latest Ganso soap opera.
To put it short, Ganso wants to move on. Problem is, he wants to go to a Brazilian club. Worst of all, his favored club to do such thing is a regional Santos rival: São Paulo.
Photoshop does no good
Homesickness must be one of the most common problems with Brazilian players. Ok, it’s usually overlooked by the wages they earn in the European – and increasingly in Middle East and China as well – market, but it’s fascinating how news come up every now and then about players looking to get back to Brazil for numerous reasons.
The last player who did that is Robinho, who’s been playing for the struggling Italian giant Milan.
Zinho in Flamengo’s press conference
We’ve been following Flamengo’s transfer saga in this international transfer window since the month began. Unfortunately for them, it hasn’t been much of a success as they saw Wolfsburg saying “no” to their loan bid to get attacking midfielder Diego, and long-time idol and center-back Juan, previously on Italian side Roma, chose Internacional instead of his childhood club also putting the blame on Flamengo’s board to his decision. And their (sad) story doesn’t end there. Continue reading
Zinho admits Flamengo might leave empty-handed
Flamengo entered this transfer window in much need of an attacking midfielder to organize their team, a centreback who could show confidence and be relied to not feature constantly in injury treatment, and depth for their attack, as well as some backups for their starter fullbacks. But so far, Flamengo only got Victor Cáceres: a defensive midfielder from Libertad, who plays in a position that Flamengo doesn’t need much reinforcement. And as the transfer window gets close to its end, Flamengo football director Zinho admits that the team might leave this transfer window without any other signings. Continue reading
Oscar close to Chelsea
I expected this soap opera to last until the Olympics, but it seems that I was wrong. Not the first time, I admit, but I’m glad to see that people didn’t get stuck in the middle of everything. Well, for instance, everyone is reporting that Oscar seems pretty close to Chelsea, and this time is for real. Continue reading
Corinthians aiming Nenê
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. Continue reading
Fluminense announces official Conca transfer bid
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
