Player had negotiations for an extension for some time and made a decision with the club
With three matches to spare, Palmeiras was crowned with the Brazilian Championship trophy after Internacional’s defeat by América Mineiro, even before defeating Fortaleza. With the end of the competition, the team led by Abel Ferreira reached 81 points, more than the 80 in the last two Palmeiras titles, in 2016 and 2018, and also had the best attack and the best defense in the championship.
With another title under the command of the Portuguese coach, the direction of alviverde paulista seeks to renew the contracts near the end of those players who participated actively in recent achievements, such as Libertadores and the Brasileirão itself. One of these cases is that of Luan. According to the calculation of the Nosso Palestra portal, the defender signed his new contract until 2024 with Verdão.
Luan suffered a serious injury after the Club World Cup, in early 2022, and spent a lot of time off the pitch, losing his position to Murilo. However, since arriving in 2017 from Vasco, the defender has been one of the most chosen for the defensive system along with Gustavo Gómez. In 2018 he became an absolute starter with Felipão, in the Brasileirão title.
Another important player in Palmeiras’ recent titles still has an open contract: Dudu. The striker and the club continue to work to extend the number 7 tie, valid until the end of 2023. Verdão is negotiating a renewal of two more years with some clauses that activate an automatic renewal of another season if the goals are reached .
