England’s Newcastle offered €16 million (R$89.6 million) to expel Matheus França from Flamengo. Newcastle wants to sign Flamengo player.
GE communicated on December 23 that the British had started negotiations with the red-black board, but that the offer had been formalized.
We know that Rubro-Negro only intends to receive offers in excess of 20 million euros. França, who turns 19 on April 1, is today the main jewel of Flamengo’s base, alongside Laurent, two years younger than him.
Player with little professional experience
Matheus França is just a year into his professional career and has managed to win two titles for Flamengo in 2022: the Copa do Brasil and also the Libertadores.
He has played 26 games professionally and scored 7 goals so far. In the current season, he scored a goal for Flamengo in the debut of the Campeonato Carioca, in the 1-0 victory over Audax.
This Thursday, journalist Fabrizio Romano reported Newcastle’s €16 million offer.
Last December, Flamengo turned down an offer of 14 million euros from the German club Bayer Leverkusen, which has been with the player Matheus França since the beginning of 2022.
Meanwhile, Lyon have their eyes on the midfield and intend to attack. Real Madrid, Mengo Vinicius Júnior’s Cria team, sent scouts to accompany the youngster to Brazil.
Many teams eyeing young Brazilians
At first, many young players moved to international football and were successful.
We can remember players who today shine in European countries who left Brazil when they were still young.
In the first place, we can remember Neymar, however, other great players shine for many years away.
Casemiro today playing for Manchester United is perhaps the best midfielder in the world.
In this way, the Brazilians attracted the attention of teams in England for a long time.
Whether Matheus França will arrive at Newcastle we don’t know, whether it will be worth the investment either.
But the gamble has paid off for many teams, as in the cases mentioned above.
Newcastle are fourth in the Premier League. Being behind teams like Arsenal, in addition to Manchester City and Manchester United.
Could the possible arrival of Matheus França help the team move up in the standings?
It’s hard to know, it would be a bet by the team on the young player, who hasn’t even established himself on Brazilian soil yet.
At this moment, the young player is still establishing himself in the good team of Flamengo, and the truth is that he has not won much praise from the Brazilian media.
All eyes on other young Brazilians
While Matheus França is on Newcastle’s radar, other Brazilians have awakened the eyes of the world.
Vitor Roque is a 17-year-old Athletico Paranaense player and everyone expects him to be a great player.
Another even younger player is Deivid Washington, only 15 years old, who belongs to Santos, the same team that revealed Neymar.
Only time will tell if these players will in fact be great stars.
- The fastest athletes in the world
- The biggest comebacks in Champions League history
- What is the Super Bowl?
For the time being, Flamengo has not accepted the proposal by the athlete Matheus França, it is possible that the Newcastle team will increase the proposal.
Bruno Guimarães can help convince the Flamengo team to release the athlete, let’s wait for the result of this negotiation.
