Last week, it was reported in Brazil that Fulham had won the race for the signing of Flamengo striker Rodrigo Muniz.
Following a battle against Middlesbrough, it was claimed that the Cottagers ended up finding a deal for an €8m move, where they’d let the Rio de Janeiro side keep 20% of a future transfer.
Local outlets were very confident that Muniz would soon move to London and sign for the Whites, but according to the latest reports, the Championship side changed their mind about the deal.
O Dia now claims that Fulham ‘did not fulfil what was agreed’ and are trying to reduce the numbers. It was ‘the club’s owner, who resides in the United States’ who spoke to the striker’s representatives and presented a different offer.
It’s said the Cottagers now want to pay €6m for the transfer and let Flamengo have 50% of a future move.
What’s interesting is that O Dia claims that Flamengo officials Bruno Spindel and Marcos Braz now wait for the official offer, to send it to the club’s lawyers and carry on with the transfer. So even though they don’t say it explicitly, it seems the Rio de Janeiro side will say yes to this new formula.
