“There’s nothing signed, nothing official from Cruzeiro. Let’s talk, really, but there are numerous clubs behind. The first thing we want to talk about is Cruzeiro. He’s a young man, he doesn’t have a contract deal,” explained Ezio Mol.
“The repercussion is worldwide, not only the Brazilian club is behind. We are analyzing everything, one of each, properly, to arrive at a common denominator, to be the best for the boy. We are talking”, he said.
After the goal scored by Davi Luiz, several clubs sent representatives to Rio Piracicaba, the boy’s hometown. Cruzeiro sent two professionals from its base category and invited him to train at Toca da Raposa I. Atltico also sent a professional from its base and presented the young promise with a shirt.

At 12 years old, Davi Luiz still cannot sign a formal contract. The boy can be registered for sports initiation activities, with a bond until the end of each season. In this way, the club guarantees indemnities referring to FIFA’s solidarity mechanism.
The first training contract can only be signed when he turns 14 years old, and can receive financial assistance, without creating an employment relationship with the club. The law establishes that athletes must close the first professional agreement from the age of 16.
