Player was one of the main targets of Peixe and had negotiations exposed with a rival
Santos ended its participation in the Brazilian Championship without a vacancy in the Libertadores and with an inconstant moment. In the last five rounds of the Brazilian Championship, there were three defeats, two of them consecutive in the last rounds, one victory and one draw. With that, he finished the competition in 12th place, eight points away from the G-8, closed by Fortaleza, to whom he lost in the last round.
With the end of the season, the board of alvinegro Praiano quickly acted behind the scenes to start planning for next year. With that, in recent days, he announced Paulo Roberto Falcão as sporting director and quickly elected Odair Hellmann as the team’s coach. Both have spells at Internacional, and the first big target for the new season came from the Colorados.
Edenilson midfielder was the first name requested by the new coaching staff. The experienced midfielder left Internacional next season and was the subject of a dispute in the market, which also actively involves Atlético Mineiro. However, negotiations with Peixe, which involved the possibility of an exchange of players, did not go in the best way.
With that, according to the calculation of Atlético-MG sector manager Fred Augusto, “Galo and Inter advanced in the negotiation for Edenilson”. In addition, there is already an agreement signed between the athleticans and the player. “Two-year contract, with the possibility of renewal for another year”, he confirmed. According to Portal do Colorado, Edenílson receives BRL 800,000 per month in salary at Inter.
