Diego has 12 games this season and has been an alternate on the bench. At 37 years old, he is one of the leaders of Flamengo’s squad.
Grêmio is looking for reinforcements for the Serie B dispute. It has negotiations with midfielder Lucas Leiva to strengthen the midfield and also seeks a more offensive player for the sector. Striker Guilherme, ex-Botafogo and Sport, should arrive from the reopening of the window, on July 18.
