Fulham have had their bid for Flamengo striker Rodrigo Muniz rejected by the Brazilian club, the local media says
According to O Dia, the Rio de Janeiro side ‘didn’t take long’ to analyse the offer and turn it down.
It’s said director Bruno Spindel had a conversation with the intermediates who brought the official bid and claimed that the formula offered by Fulham isn’t what they want.
Flamengo’s intention is to sell the striker on a permanent move, while the Whites’ intention was to sign him on a loan deal with an option to buy.
O Dia claims that Fulham offered €1m for a one-year spell plus a buying option of €9m. They even tried to negotiate by raising the amount for the loan and decreasing the price for the buying clause, but Flamengo didn’t want to carry on with the talks.
The report points out that Rodrig Muniz was keen on the move, as he liked the salary and the project offered by the Craven Cottage side. It’s once again claimed that Marco Silva spoke to his agents and explained his wish to guide him the same way he did with Richarlison at Watford.
Flamengo continue to negotiate the striker’s sale, and while in talks with Al Nasr, they demand €8m. So that’s probably how much Fulham would need to pay to sign him this summer.
