Player has been coveted in the market and will leave his current club for 2023
After a positive sequence of eight unbeaten games in the Brazilian Championship, Fortaleza fell to Palmeiras, in the game that crowned the alviverde title. After that, he returned to Arena Castelão and drew with Atlético-GO and amended two important victories: a 6-0 thrashing against Bragantino and 2-0 away from home against Santos to get a place in the 2023 Libertadores.
With 55 points, the tricolor from Ceará ended the last round of the Brasileirão in 8th place, one point ahead of São Paulo, which was rooting against Fortaleza in the last round to try for a vacancy. With the classification, the backstage of Leão do Pici turned to the transfer market. To keep Vojvoda for 2023, the direction promised more investments and a more complete cast.
One of the targets for next season is an old acquaintance: striker David. According to the Revista Colorada portal, the Internacional player was released by the Rio Grande do Sul club to look for a new team. David cost Internacional R$11 million, who signed him until 2025 after a positive season at Fortaleza.
Despite the long bond at Beira-Rio, the player’s manager, André Cury, revealed that “at least eight teams” want David. That is, Fortaleza must have competition from seven teams in the market. At the age of 27, David played 21 games in the Brasileirão for Colorado, ten as a starter, and did not score goals – his last one was in the Campeonato Gaúcho.
