Even though West Ham United and Flamengo are thought to be in very advanced talks for the transfer of Fabricio Bruno, it seems they’re still to make a decision on when the move will take place.

Earlier this week, as soon as the agreement was announced, it had been claimed that the centre-back would only play two more games for his current club. That was Wednesday’s match against Amazonas, which he did feature in, and then Tuesday’s against Millionarios in Copa Libertadores.

O Globo now features a story claiming that Flamengo are planning a farewell tribute for the player in the next match, but that may not be his final game before joining West Ham.

The story states that even though the Rio de Janeiro side are afraid of him picking up an injury, it’s Fabricio Bruno’s desire that will dictate whether he’ll play more or not. And he may be on the pitch another time.

As Flamengo have a derby against Vasco da Gama on June 2nd, there’s a chance that could be his farewell match. That reportedly sounds ‘appetising’ for a goodbye before he moves to London and signs for West Ham.

We’ll see if the Hammers are fine with that situation, or if they’ll request him to stop playing for Flamengo as soon as possible. This is starting to feel like Fabricio Bruno and his club testing their luck a little too much.
