Without space in the main squad, the athlete has been training with the U20 team, which is preparing for the Equality Cup, a friendly tournament in Qatar
The soap opera involving midfielder Lucas Lima gained another chapter in Sport. Cornered in Santosand with practically no market, the athlete’s name once again gained strength behind the scenes on Ilha do Retiro. The information was initially given by Trivela, and confirmed by the NE45 report.
The 33-year-old athlete, who has a contract with the São Paulo team until the end of 2025, would arrive at Rubro-negro from Pernambuco on loan until the end of the year, with his salaries divided between the two clubs. It is speculated that the athlete receives R$350,000 per month.
In the first half of January, Leão’s board agreed all the details with the São Paulo team, but the player and his staff reportedly refused the loan, seeking new possibilities in the market. Without searching, the path becomes clear for Sport.
In 2023, the athlete played 50 matches for the São Paulo team, scoring two goals and distributing ten assists. Outside of coach Fábio Carille’s plans, the midfielder was warned in December last year that he could look for alternatives to continue his career.
Revealed by Internacional, Lucas Lima passed Sport in 2013. That year, he was one of the main names on the team that gained access to Series A of the Brazilian Championship. In total, he played 53 games, scoring nine goals and six assists.
