Talks have progressed in recent days. Daniel Alves is willing to play at Arena da Baixada, but wants some financial guarantees to avoid what happened during his time at São Paulo, as determined by GOAL. The veteran is creditor to the club in more than R$ 20 million and receives a monthly amount.
The main proposal made to the right-back, who still dreams about the 2022 World Cup, in Qatar, is from Athletico-PR. However, the people of Paraná are not the only ones interested. Fluminense and clubs in Mexico also show interest, even if they have not submitted a proposal.

The problem is the financial issue. The Flu recognizes that it lives in crisis and doesn’t have enough money to pay the veteran’s salaries.
