Raised in the base categories and doing very well for Timão’s professional, the defender will not play for Benfica
The movements in Brazilian football are stirring the hearts of the fans, not least because many teams are making a lot of investments, carrying out a kind of reformulation in the squad, while others only sought occasional reinforcements. The intention is to have quality options before the beginning of the competitions considered more important.
It is clear that the competition has hindered the plans of many, as well as the financial condition, since salaries are increasingly high and not everyone can count on the contribution of the SAF’s. Anyway, even with confirmed news, many still haven’t given up and are still extremely attentive to opportunities that may arise.
In case of Corinthians, for example, the arrival of a midfielder is still one of the main needs, given that without Renato Augusto, the creative sector leaves much to be desired. However, at least so far, no negotiation has progressed, especially after the arrival of Matheus Pereira, from Al-Hilal.
While Timão follows this line, a “Cria do Terrão” will change its scenery: after being recently sold to Benfica, from Portugal, John Victor, aged 24, did not have many opportunities there, playing only 3 games. Even so, knowing the defender’s potential, the Europeans ended up making a decision.
The news that “leaked” and reached Parque São Jorge involves the departure of the beque to Nantes, in France. With the teams already agreed, it is expected in the coming days and he will sign a contract until the end of the season, that is, June 30, 2023. It is worth remembering that his contract with the Portuguese ends only in 2027, that is, there are many years left for him to return and have a chance to shine for the Encarnados.
