Watford forward Richarlison never wanted to make his frustration over the sacking of manager Marco Silva a big secret.
Just after the boss was fired, the Brazilian quickly tweeted an angry emoji, and later thanked Silva in an Instagram post.
It was the Portuguese manager who convinced Richarlison to join Watford instead of Ajax, who the player already had an agreement with, and the relationship between them had been pretty good during their few months together in the Premier League.
Now with Silva gone, it’s no surprise the rumours about Richarlison’s departure from Watford start to grow, especially with a few big clubs being linked to him lately.
Brazilian website UOL has a take on his situation today, basically saying that a departure is pretty much on the cards.
The website claims that a January move would only happen in case of a ‘very tempting offer’, but Richarlison ‘would accept’ a transfer in the summer.
According to people close to him, staying in the Premier League is part of his career plan, as long as he goes to a club where he plays regularly.
UOL mentions Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham as potential pretenders for the forward, but these names all came from the English press, so there isn’t any fresh name on the list so far.
Watford’s minimum demand for the Brazilian is said to be £50m.
