In a WhatsApp group, an ally criticized the statement. He accused the president of giving up on Gabigol and placing the responsibility on the player. Shortly afterwards, Landim responded – as revealed by journalist Raisa Simplicio. O ge also had access to the text written by the director:

– We are not giving up, we just won’t be held hostage to any value arbitrated by him, far above the market he has to renew. This was the main reason why we did not renew in the past. And no player will lose more if his contract is not renewed than him precisely because he is a great idol. The loss of image that he will have and will be reflected throughout his life will be brutal, I have no doubt about that.

Internally, the red-black management understands that Gabigol’s renewal will guide Flamengo’s election year. The issue is debated by groups allied to the president and also by the opposition, which is still organizing to launch the candidate.

The negotiation, however, gained a new chapter after the two-year suspended sentence for attempted drug test fraud. The club is trying to obtain a suspension from CAS so that it can count on Gabigol while he awaits the trial in Switzerland.

The contract renewal was scheduled for October 2023, but was never signed. The agreement was for a new contract until December 2028 and with salary increase, as Gabigol has not received a raise since the definitive purchase in January 2020.

The conditions, however, were not well regarded by a wing of the red-black board, mainly due to the length of the contract due to the athlete’s performance in 2023. At the time, Landim did not agree to the renewal and defended waiting for the 2024 season to analyze the player.

Despite this, a wing of the red-black board believes that there will be a positive outcome between the parties. Gabigol will be free from the middle of the year and will be able to sign a pre-contract.

Gabigol, 27 years old, has been at Flamengo since 2019 and has 278 games, 155 goals and 11 titles: three Carioca Championships (2019, 2020 and 2021), two Brazilian Championships (2019 and 2020), two Libertadores (2019 and 2022), two Brazilian Super Cups (2020 and 2021), a Brazilian Cup (2022) and a South American Recopa (2020).
