In an interview last Thursday night, president Augusto Melo said he was unaware of the Rio team’s refusal to accept the offer made by Timão and expressed confidence in a deal.

– I don’t know about that [recusa do Flamengo], I’ve already reached a situation because the athlete wants to play for Corinthians, we found out about it. He is a good boy, it is important to form this wonderful group that we are forming and I have no doubt, it is a matter of time. But I’m not aware of that, it’s part of it – said Augusto Melo.

Rizek says Corinthians’ situation resembles Cruzeiro’s: “The equation is not simple”

The full-back trained with the Timão squad for a few days, going to the field in an open training session held on the eve of the debut in the Campeonato Paulista. Even so, the agreement was not sealed between the parties.

Augustou Melo once again explained why he did not sign the contract initially agreed between Rubens Gomes, Corinthians’ football director, Matheuzinho’s agents and Flamengo.

– That was a good thing, my day starts at 8 am and ends at midnight, one o’clock. When it was handed to me, I had to rush and sign the contract. As he was close to signing, they put the guy into training. When I went to analyze the contract, I saw that it wasn’t beneficial for Corinthians and I said I wouldn’t accept it.

– In the case of Lucas Veríssimo, if I were the president, I would not have come. The player was injured, we recovered him and put him in the showcase. Matheuzinho would be the same thing, we will no longer serve as an intermediary and window for anyone. No one will use Corinthians as an intermediary anymore – explained Augusto Melo.

Corinthians’ proposal for Matheuzinho is 4 million euros (around R$20 million), which would be paid in installments. Botafogo offered the same amount, but with payment in cash.
