Flamengo continues to adjust the squad

O Flamengo is experiencing a very different start to the season than usual. After all, after spending the entire 2023 without winning any trophies, Mais Querido started 2024 by making some changes to its squad, such as the departure of defender Pablo.

Wanted by Corinthians, the Botafogo ended up negotiating and agreed with Rubro-Negro to loan the defender. It is worth noting that Glorioso also wanted Matheuzinho and John Textor even agreed the deal with Rodolfo Landim.

However, as the athlete did not want to play for Glorioso, Timão matched the offer and the tendency is for him to close a new contractual relationship with Alvinegro do Parque São Jorge.

However, returning to talk about Pablo, Botafogo will have the athlete until the end of the season through a free loan with no option to purchase. It is interesting to note that Santos also tried to sign him.

Behind the scenes of the business by Pablo

In addition to Corinthians, it is worth highlighting that the deal with Santos was also close to completion, as coach Fábio Carillewith whom he was Brazilian champion in 2017, even called the defender.

However, the two surveys with São Paulo ended up not progressing and Botafogo was the chosen destination. According to Venê Casagrande, The athlete’s representatives see Glorioso as the best option.

On the other hand, according to information from ‘Canal do Thiago Franklin’, Glorioso will pay only 60% of the player’s salaries, while Mais Querido will cover the rest of the costs.

Thus, as the player’s salary at Mengão was around R$ 600 thousand per month, Flamengo will continue paying approximately R$240 thousand/month, which will give a value of almost R$3 million in December.

Flamengo still hasn’t brought in another defender

Having said that, even though it was practically not used during the period in which it was in Gávea, Pablo leaves Mais Querido without any replacement in the transfer market.

This is because, even after all the soap opera involving the possible signing of Léo Ortiz, Flamengo has still not managed to complete the deal and continues with the same options as last year.

In contrast, Mengão has already gone ahead and agreed on the renewal with Fabrício Bruno, who was one of the best defensive players in South American football throughout 2023.

Finally, Without Pablo in the squad, Flamengo will return to the field next Sunday (4), at 7pm, in the classic against Vasco. Whoever loses will be left out of the G-4 of the Carioca Championship.
