In an interview with “Canal do Benja”, in September, the vice president of football at Rubro-Negro confirmed that he is preparing three signings aimed at the World Cup, including one of “world reference”. As the tournament will be played in March, the European transfer window will be open.
– When the team plays the World Cup in December, the windows are closed. Flamengo, if they win the Libertadores, will compete in the World Cup in March – he said, before adding:
– So, nothing more natural that we strengthen ourselves even more at the window. Then I think the sky is the limit (for hires). Our thought is that this is it, three signings, one being much above average, a world reference – he concluded.
