Timão lives January to be forgotten

Thus, although he chose to release names like Gil, Giuliano and Renato Augusto, fans were excited about the start of Augusto Melo’s tenure, as there were several impactful statements.

In addition to saying that the “party” of Palmeiras and Flamengo would endthe president also ended up confirming the hiring of Lucas Veríssimo even before the signing, which ended up frustrating the Corinthians.

To end the month of January, although the largest master sponsorship in Latin America has closed, the Timão lost 2-1 to São Paulo and saw the taboo against the rival at the Neo Química Arena dissolve.

Changes to the Corinthians squad

That said, despite having released around nine players, Coringão also decided to attack the market and spent a lot of money to sign some highlights from last season.

Among the names confirmed so far, six athletes have already been officially announced: Félix Torres, Hugo, Diego Palacios, Raniele, Rodrigo Garro and Gustavo Henrique. However, another name is very close to the announcement.

This is the center forward Pedro Raul, 27 years old. The number 9 was at Toluca (MEX) and has already agreed with Timão, but it has not yet been announced. In any case, the tendency is for this to happen in the coming days.

To have the former Vasco striker in your squad, Corinthians will need to pay around R$25 million (US$5 million). That is, what would make Pedro Raul the third largest investment made by Augusto Melo.

Reinforcement figures reach R$100 million

It is worth highlighting that the center forward arrives with the mission of fighting for the position with Yuri Alberto. The 22-year-old striker is going through the worst phase of his career and has been disappointing the Fiel Torcida.

However, in addition, Pedro Raul will arrive with the weight of having been the signing that made Augusto Melo surpass the figure of R$100 million in signings at the beginning of 2024. That is, it comes under pressure.

Even though he hired Rodrigo Garro, from Talleres-ARG (R$34 million) and Félix Torre (R$32 million) for higher amounts, shirt 9 arrives with the weight of the position he occupies. That is, with the mission of solving Mano Menezes’ problems.

Finally, as the squad continues to have gaps and vacancies to be filled in the list of participants in the state, despite all the investment mentioned, some fans took to social media to criticize the new president.
