Proposal at the table, constant dialogue and patience. Flamengo opened negotiations with Udinese to sign Wallace. The first investment for 70% of the economic rights was refused by the Italians, but the negotiations continue with the participation of the player, who is looking for alternatives for the release. Zenit’s Wendel is another who has ongoing talks for the industry.

With another 40 days to go until the transfer window closes, which is open from July 18 to August 15 -, the club understands that it is necessary to have patience for favorable conditions. The first investment was around R$ 20 million. Revealed by Grêmio and Olympic champion in 2016, Wallace, 27, has been with Udinese for three seasons, with 90 games and one goal.

Wallace was bought by Udinese in mid-2019 for 6 million euros and has a contract until June 2024. Before, he spent three years in Germany, where he defended Hamburg and Hannover 96. In 2017, Flamengo had long negotiations with Hamburg to have the steering wheel on loan and was not successful. At the time, the player declared himself a fan of the club on social media.

The firmer talks to buy Wallace do not represent the end of negotiations for Wendel. The red-black board, however, understands that the negotiations with Udinese indicate greater flexibility than with Zenit. As much as there is a loophole for FIFA to suspend the contracts of players who play in Russia for a year, the Russians presented a long list of requirements for release.
