Another ‘medallion’ at Corinthians?

Corinthians knows that the negotiation between Willian and Arsenal is extremely difficult, as the athlete’s family wants to continue in Europe, and the high salaries, paid in pounds sterling, are an obstacle.

Even so, the São Paulo club is monitoring the player’s situation until the end of this window (August 31) and does not rule out making an offer to the Brazilian, who never hid his love for the team.

‘No’ to Palmeiras

New York City striker Taty Castellanos negotiated with Palmeiras in April, but the transfer was unsuccessful. Yesterday, the Argentine player gave an interview to the newspaper Marca and highlighted the impact of the covid-19 pandemic in Brazil to make his decision.

“There were a lot of rumors, an offer that was official, but I also had a clear head here. It influenced a lot that the teammates and the coaching staff wanted me to stay to continue adding and conquering things in the future, to have the opportunity to go to a better place. It had to do with the question of life. Fortunately, in the United States things [envolvendo a covid-19] are better. You have to think about yourself,” he said.
