Already thinking about names for next season’s squad, Fluminense showed interest in signing striker Moisés, who plays for Cruz Azul, in Mexico, and stood out in this edition of the Brazilian Championship for Fortaleza. The information is from the “Trivela” portal.
Bought in the middle of this year by the Mexican club for R$24.5 million, Moisés was unable to perform in North America. As a result, Cruz Azul, which has exceeded its number of foreign players in the squad for the national championship, is not opposed to a possible departure of the 27-year-old player. In addition to Fluminense, Grêmio and Fortaleza are also monitoring the attacker.
The negotiation, however, is seen as difficult for Tricolor, due to competition from other clubs and the high value of a possible loan for the player. Moisés receives 90 thousand dollars (around R$435 thousand) at Cruz Azul, and the Mexican club wants the team that has the striker to pay 100% of his salaries.
A standout for Ponte Preta in the 2021 Series B, Moisés was bought by Fortaleza the following year and became one of the main highlights of the team coached by Juan Pablo Vojvoda. For Leão do Pici, the striker scored 21 goals and provided nine assists in 85 matches played.
During his time at Fortaleza, Moisés played a fair-play moment against Fluminense himself. In a play with Nino, the tricolor defender felt a muscle injury and the Leão attacker threw the ball out to the defender. The act was even praised by Tricolor das Laranjeiras.
