The player should arrive at the club this afternoon to undergo medical examinations and, if approved, is ready to sign a contract valid until next year. With no space in Porto, where he arrived in 2018, João Pedro was loaned to Bahia and now to Alvinegro.

At the age of 24, the full-back was revealed in the base categories of rival Palmeiras and had performances, on loan, at Chapecoense and Bahia, his first time at the club before going to Europe.

Bought by Porto for 4 million euros, the loan contract to Corinthians already has a pre-established, but undisclosed, fixed purchase price. The salary will be divided between the Portuguese and the Parque São Jorge team.

Third reinforcement of Timão this season, arriving after Giuliano and Renato Augusto, João Pedro will be Fagner’s reserve, who also has Matheus Alexandre and Du Queiroz.
