The telenovela Palmeiras e Lucas Alario has finally come to an end. And it didn’t have a happy ending.

Internacional seeks reinforcement in the same position, but already has some names that interest: Brian Rodríguez, from Los Angeles FC, and Ezequiel Barco , from Atlanta United, both from MLS, and David, from Fortaleza.

Palm trees without Alario

Palmeiras and Bayer Leverkusen have not reached an agreement, and Lucas Alario, 29, will not be a player for the club alviverde. Alviverde agreed to pay for the athlete’s one-year loan, but the Germans refused all forms of payment offered. The São Paulo club had already agreed the conditions for him to play at the club for a year. The striker and his agent were interested in him being a starter in a top team, with a view to being called up to the World Cup.

The president of São Paulo, Julio Casares, said that negotiations with Soteldo were ended. The representative pointed to the financial values ​​of the business as a reason for the Morumbi team to have given up. “We are no longer negotiating with Soteldo. But who knows, one day. When I say ‘maybe one day’, I remember Calleri’s example. The fans wanted Calleri, and so did we, and he came later, as long as it met the budget responsibility”, explained Casares to Sportv.
