Fulham have not given up on the signing of Flamengo striker Rodrigo Muniz, according to reports from Brazil.
Newspaper O Dia now comes up to say that at Marco Silva’s request, the Whites will make a new offer to sign the 20-year-old.
Fulham had already tried to sign the player with a bid for a loan deal with an option to buy. The club wanted to spend €1m on the temporary spell and then have the chance to sign him permanently in a €9m operation.
Even though it was claimed that the player liked the project, Flamengo turned down the offer, as they wanted a simple sale.
Now, according to O Dia, Fulham will try to convince Flamengo by offering a deal where the buying clause will be triggered by performance goals. Those objectives will be pretty ‘accessible’.
The report says the offer wasn’t put on paper so far, and should be of €1m for the loan spell plus €8m for the purchase. It’s claimed that the Whites are insisting on that kind of operation just so they can dribble Financial Fair Play.
It’s claimed that Al Nasr already have an agreement with Muniz’s agents, but Fulham’s project ‘pleases the player more’ by the way the London side showed their interest. Marco Silva’s meeting with his entourage is once again highlighted.
In other Fulham news, it looks like the Craven Cottagge side could soon lose Antonee Robinson. RMC Sport (via GFNF) reports today that French side Bordeaux are looking to sign the defender on loan with an option to buy.
