Gabigol became a reserve at Flamengo after the arrival of coach Tite. With few chances at Rubro-Negro and with a contract valid until the end of 2024, Corinthians observed the situation and decided to put Gávea’s number 10 on the club’s list of priorities. According to presenter Neto, coach Mano Menezes asked for Gabi to be hired.
— I found out that Corinthians will fight to bring Gabigol next year. In case of a sale of Yuri Alberto. I don’t know if it’s something concrete, but Gabigol hasn’t renewed with Flamengo yet. Bro (Menezes) wants him. Whoever comes as football director, in either of the two administrations, will try to hire him, because Mano wants him. They may even say no, but I’m saying they want to – he highlighted, on the program Os Donos da Bola, on TV Band.
Gabigol’s name would have been suggested by Mano Menezes, current coach of Corinthians. Alvinegro is evaluating the possibility of making a proposal, if Yuri Alberto, Timão’s starting striker, is negotiated with European football.
Mano Menezes signed a contract with Corinthians until the end of 2024, with the aim of starting planning for the next season. This is already part of the process. But the point is that Flamengo started negotiations with Gabigol to renew the contract, which ends at the end of 2024. However, the board ‘stopped’ the talks to extend the contract and nothing has been defined.
