Board has prioritized the renewal with the players of the current squad
After being strong in the ball market at the beginning of the year, signing names like NikonAlisson and Rafinha, the director of the Sao Paulo has focused on renewing players in the current squad. Recently, young Pablo Maia and striker Luciano signed contracts until 2024.
Who is very close to following this path is defender Diego Costa. The defender was used again by Rogério Ceni this season, becoming the team’s main supporter. According to Bolavip Brasil, the player has a verbal agreement for renewal until 2024.
With some players still in line, the board’s priority became midfielder Igor Gomes. The number 26 has complete confidence in Ceni, but the fan is not unanimous. His contract runs until March 2023 and the talks are not heading towards a positive outcome.
“Today, it is difficult to renew oneself with the values on the table. Wagner Ribeiro treats Igor as a sure lucrative sale, while Ceni uses him as a starter but he doesn’t please everyone. There is still distrust. For the time being, nothing has been done and its renewal is still an impasse”; stated the São Paulo blog portal. The information was confirmed by Bolavip Brasil.
