Nottingham Forest have now triggered Carlos Miguel’s release clause at Corinthians, according to reports from Brazil.

Journalist Rudy Galetti is the one bringing the information to Twitter, claiming the €4m fine is now paid.

Earlier today, the UOL journalists Bruno Andrade and André Hernan had shared Nottingham Forest’s offer to sign the goalkeeper.

The offer was sent by Nottingham Forest on June 5, supposed to be valid until June 7. The price on it was for the player’s €4m release clause.

Since the Reds were only expected to do that in July, Carlos Miguel was still expected to play for Corinthians at the weekend. Now we wait and see what will happen.

There’s some bitter feeling about this transfer at the Brazilian club, because the goalkeeper worked hard to get a starting place in the team, and is choosing to leave just months after that.

The only reason his release clause was €4m was because he used to be on the bench. That means Nottingham Forest may be signing him as a bargain, and that may be proven next season.
