After being officialy released by Fluminense, Crystal Palace target Diego Cavalieri is finally free to sign for any club on a free deal.

The player has parted ways with the Brazilian side back in January, but as they hadn’t reached a financial agreement so far, he was still registered as a club player.

Now as reported by Globo Esporte, Fluminense have announced that a deal has been reached, making the release official this Friday.

This probably all explains the goalkeeper’s denials earlier today.

The confirmation should be made at the Brazilian FA’s website at any moment. At the time we wrote this story, the contract break still hasn’t been published.

Even though Cavalieri has denied the negotiations with Palace earlier today, several outlets confirm that he’s on his way to the London side.

When covering Cavalieri’s Crystal Palace denial we stated it could be something to do with Fluminense and sorting out his situation with them, and it seems that’s been the case.

Last night, Globo Esporte claimed that the delay in the negotiations had to do with the contract length, since Palace were offering a deal of less than a year.
