On Thursday, we already had a couple of stories with the deails of Fulham’s bid for Flamengo striker Rodrigo Muniz. The latest information on the saga had come from O Dia journalist Venê Casagrande, who claimed that the Whites are putting on the table a total amount of €8m for the signing.
The reporter first published the information on the outlet, and later, featured on his Youtube channel a video with a lot more details on the pursuit.
Besides all the news regarding the talks between the clubs, there’s now some insight about how Rodrigo Muniz received Fulham’s approach and his response to it.
Venê Casagrande explains that manager Marco Silva first got in touch with the player’s representatives, and then asked if he could speak to the striker himself. The agents accepted it and the two had a conversation on the phone.
Even though Muniz has other offers from the likes of Al Nasr and Middlesbrough, it’s said that after the conversation with Silva, he became convinced that the best thing for his career would be the move to Fulham.
In that chat, it’s claimed that the player even asked Silva if he’d make his debut against Middlesbrough, since that’s their second fixture in the Championship season, and said he wants to be at the club as soon as possible.
Boro’s bid is better for Flamengo, since they offer €5m for only 50% of the player’s rights. However, Muniz’s representatives have already told the Brazilian club that they’re not taking that offer, as they want the move to Fulham.
Venê Casagrande says it’s a matter of time until a transfer is done, and right now, it looks like it’s Fulham who’ll win the race.
