Grêmio forwarded the hiring of midfielder Franco Cristaldo, from Huracán. At this time, contractual bureaucracies remain for the announcement to be made.
As found out by UOL Sport, the main contractual frameworks have already been discussed and details remain. The deal is expected to close this week.
Huracán asks for around R$ 20 million for the owner. The club from Rio Grande do Sul would pay a ticket and the rest in installments. If all goes well, the midfielder, who stands out in the Argentine Championship, will be the first reinforcement for the season. Reinaldo, formerly of São Paulo, is also close to signing a contract for two seasons.
The conversations were long, mainly due to the demands of Huracán, who saw Santos as the second person interested in the player. However, the Gauchos took the lead for the highest amount offered as an entry.
“Grêmio is better positioned”, summarized Gustavo Mendelovich, vice-president of Huracán, when UOL🇧🇷
In August, Santos was very close to signing Cristaldo, but ran into bureaucracies at the HOUR. The midfielder was already discussing the move to Brazil and called President Andres Rueda crying. In recent days, however, Peixe has not made another attempt.
In addition to Franco Cristaldo, Grêmio is trying right-back Rodinei (from Flamengo), midfielder Felipe Carballo (Nacional-URU) and striker Michael (ex-Flamengo and currently at Al-Hilal).
