Last week, claims from the Brazilian media said that West Ham United were close to signing Flamengo midfielder Gustavo Cuellar.
It’s been claimed that the Colombian international would move to the Premier League after the Copa America, with the Hammers paying around €30m for him.
Cuellar denied the rumours in a press conference last week, and now, has spoken to his home country media about it once again.
Interviewed by Radio Caracol, the player claims that his ‘agent is in charge’, as he ‘has contract with Flamengo’, and is focusing on recovering from his injury and succeeding both for club and country. He’s also said that if an offer comes, his agent will sort it out with the Brazilian club.
With Radio Caracol insist on the subject a little, they’ve also asked Cuellar how he feels regarding a move to the Premier League.
“It’s a very competitive league, Europe is the dream of every player, but everything comes in due time,” said the midfielder.
Flamengo are going through a small crisis after a few bad results, and fans have been making protests at the club’s training centre. Cuellar, however, is the only one who doesn’t get criticism, since his ‘pit-bull’ style is one of the few good things in the team.
