A training contract guarantees the young football player a grant and other assistance, such as medical and dental insurance. The club did not say how many athletes have been affected by the delays so far.
Corinthians faces financial difficulties, but managed to close the first half of 2021 with the accounts in the blue. However, suffering constant judicial blockades, the club has cash flow problems.
Now, the board is working to make August salaries viable, which must be paid by the fifth business day of next month.
Meanwhile, the football board continues to move in search of renowned players. Striker Róger Guedes is close to being announced. The club is also waiting for an answer from Arsenal’s attacking midfielder Willian.
