Who loses more: Fla or Gabriel Barbosa?

O Flamengo is about to start the most intense part of the 2024 season, with three important competitions ahead: Brasileirão, Copa do Brasil and Copa Libertadores ahead. However, Gávea also needs to expedite pending situations, which are not 100% under its control.

In this context of ‘loose ends’ at the Club, lies the future of Gabriel Barbosa, who lives a real soap opera to define the renewal of your contract, which ends at the end of 2024. It is worth remembering that such a scenario leaves the goalscorer free to sign a pre-contract and leave for free, from July.

However, according to information from journalist Raisa Simplício, from the Goal portal, the president of Mais Querido, Rodolfo Landim, confided to allies behind the scenes at Gávea, their views on Gabriel do Mengão’s possible departure.

“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”, stated Landim when analyzing the number 10’s case with people from the Club.

To make the situation even more complicated, number 10 was suspended for cheating on the anti-doping test, which poses yet another mission for Rubro-Negro to resolve, as both the athlete and the Club are imbued with in achieving a suspensive effect on the punishment.

The journalist’s investigation points to a detail that is discussed internally at Gávea, however, this Monday (1), Landim gave an interview to Rádio CBN and was clear about the fact that the Club did not give in to the player’s demands for renewal

The president said that Mengão won’t do ‘crazy’ to keep the idol in the squad: “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 didn’t renew in the past.”
