THE palm trees has been performing well in this participation in the Copa São Paulo de Futebol Jr, seeking an unprecedented title and proving the great work that has been carried out in the basic categories. The team led by Abel Ferreira received some reinforcements in this transfer window, but some spots are still open.

Along these lines, club sources revealed to “LANCE!” what, in addition to Endrick, an absolute highlight at just 15 years old, right-back Gustavo Garcia, midfielder Jhonatan and striker Giovani should be part of the main group for the season. Following what had already been implemented with other promises, the quartet will carry out their daily work routine, but even so, they will be available to play in grassroots competitions.
The number 9, which is being desired by Flamengo, Barcelona and other Europeans, owns 167 goals in 172 games and his lineup in the Palmeiras first team is requested by fans on social media, precisely due to the fact that the board has not been succeeding in the market’s onslaughts when it comes to a center forward.
