Announced by John Textor as reinforcement of Botafogo this Wednesday (31/1)the attacker Luiz Henrique There is still no date for travel, nor is it known for sure how long he will stay at Glorioso. And the negotiation has reason to have dragged on.
According to the newspaper “O Globo”, Luiz Henrique has three businessmen, who have disagreements with each other and do not maintain a good relationship. Are they Johnny Max, which has accompanied the player since childhood; the Italian Stefano Casatagnawho was responsible for the sale to the Betis; and the Brazilian Thiago Reggiani.
The length of stay at Botafogo before returning to Europe to defend the Lyon is one of the points of divergence. Jhonny Max stated that Luiz Henrique accepted the black and white proposal on the condition that he return to the Old Continent.
– After a long period of negotiation and evaluation of the John Textor group’s proposal, Luiz Henrique chose to return to Brazil, being part of the Botafogo squad, with the condition of returning abroad in the next window or remaining at the club for a year. The decision-making took into account the career and financial plan for the player and his family. At the moment, the player is organizing himself for his return, there is still no expected date of arrival in Brazil – said Max to “O Globo”.
Earlier, Thiago Reggiani gave an interview to “ESPN” minimizing the issue.
– Any speculation regarding future transfers to European clubs is merely conjecture, and does not reflect the current reality of the situation. What I can assure you is that the purchase of Luiz Henrique is being carried out by Botafogo – said Reggiani.
