Corinthians’ start to the season has been quite turbulent, and the club is still tinkering with its squad, looking for hiring options on the market, as well as negotiating those players who are not part of coach Mano Menezes’ plans.
Right-back should leave Corinthians
And one of the players who should leave Timão at the beginning of the season is Portuguese right-back Rafael Ramos, 29 years old, who has not been used in the Corinthians team since the second half of 2023 (his last game for Timão was in 18 July, in a game against Universitário, for the Copa Sudamericana).

Ceará is interested in signing the player, and is studying the possibilities of signing him. On the part of Corinthians, the desire is for a loan until the middle of 2024, which is also when the player’s contract with Timão ends.
Career and numbers of Rafael Ramos for Corinthians
Having spent time in the youth teams of Sporting and Benfica, Rafael Ramos became a professional in the United States, playing for Orlando City, where he played between 2014 and 2018, when he left the team to play for Twente, in the Netherlands. His experience with the Dutch club lasted just one season, and he soon agreed to return to Portuguese football, to play for Santa Clara.
The best possible news about Yuri Alberto has just reached Corinthians fans
For the Portuguese team, between 2019 and 2022, there were 82 games, being the club for which the right-back played the most in his career. His arrival at Corinthians was surrounded by some expectations, as he was an experienced international player who could compete with Fagner or replace him when he was unavailable. However, that was not what happened.
Rafael Ramos never managed to establish himself even as Fagner’s backup, and was even involved in controversy after being accused of racism by Edenílson (at the time playing for Internacional). In total, 31 games for Timão, without scoring a goal and with just one assist.
