The coach, who is close to the athlete, asked him to come to CT Joaquim Grava
In the last transfer window, Corinthians acted cautiously to supply urgent positions for Vítor Pereira’s tactical scheme. With the departure of Willian, near the end of the negotiation period, Timão could not find a player with speed and technique similar to those of the then number 10 in time.
However, the Portuguese coach tried to help Corinthians’ movements in search of a dribbling and playmaking athlete and even asked for a ‘dream’ of Flamengo to land in Joaquim Grava’s CT. Its about Oscar, midfielder who plays for the Chinese Shanghai SIPG and who had conversations with Rubro-Negro in the last transfer window.
In an interview with the podcast Speak, Brasolhofrom the YouTube channel unencumbered, the midfielder spoke not only of the flamengo interest, but also revealed the interest of other teams in the Serie A, including Corinthians. During the conversation, Oscar said that Vítor Pereira was responsible for the initial contact.
“I received contact from other teams. But Inter, as I already have a relationship from before and I have great affection for them, I talked to the president. Flamengo has Dorival’s son who is my son’s godfather, so they have this very good relationship too. It’s hard for me to get on a team and play because I’ve been out for two, three months. The team would have to understand that I needed two or three weeks to train. I even talk a lot with Dorival, I send him a message. There is Vítor Pereira, who is a very good friend of mine. Vítor also told me ‘come here, for God’s sake’. There was interest from the people I’m closest to, to become something more ‘partner’ because it would be for a short time”, explained the player, who has a contract with the Chinese until November 2024.
