Three left-backs were summoned by coach Tite, on the morning of this Wednesday (11): Alex Sandro, Alex Telles and Guilherme Arana. In the list, with 27 names, are the players who will defend the Brazilian team against South Korea and Japan, in friendlies that will take place next month, in Asian countries, in preparation for the Qatar World Cup. Renan Lodi lived the expectation of being remembered again, but again he was left out.

The 24-year-old is having a good time with the Atlético de Madrid shirt, but playing more advanced, as a striker on the left side. A SofaScoreBR survey shows that Lodi played 22 games in 2022, 15 of which as a starter, and has so far added four goals, four assists, five great chances created, nine shots (five on goal) and 69 balls recovered. One of those assists was this Wednesday (11), in the 2-0 victory over Elche, for the Spanish Championship. He served fellow countryman Matheus Chunha and the striker opened the scoring.

But the performance has been pleasing, not only in Madrid. According to Tutto Mercato, Newcastle is preparing an offer of 21 million Euros (R$113 million at the current price), to count on the Brazilian player’s football next season. The English team currently has as one of its great highlights, Bruno Guimarães. Like Lodi, the steering wheel was also revealed by Athletico-PR.

If the deal goes through and the full-back joins the midfield, Athletico could receive R$5.6 million. This is because, when he sold the player to the Madrid team, in addition to earning R$87 million, the Club was also entitled to 5% of future sales. Also according to Tutto Mercato, Juventus also monitors Lodi’s situation.
