Championship side Fulham have submitted an official bid for the signing of Flamengo striker Rodrigo Muniz, according to reports from Brazil.
Outlet O Dia claims that on Thursday, the Whites made a ‘formal’ offer for the 20-year-old.
Fulham are reportedly trying to sign the player on a loan with an option to buy, and the Craven Cottage side would pay €1m for the spell, and then have a clause to make the signing permanent for other €9m.
O Dia says Flamengo even accepted a bid of €5m from Genk, but Muniz couldn’t find a personal agreement with the Belgian side.
Then the Brazilian side started demanding €8m, but both Al Nasr and Atletico Madrid refused to meet that price.
Even Middlesbrough tried the signing on a loan with an option to buy, although there are no details on the outcome of Boro’s attempt.
In Fulham’s case, it’s claimed their project pleased the player by the way the club showed their interest.
It’s said Marco Silva had meetings with the striker’s agent and made it clear that his plans is to do something similar to what he did with Richarlison back at Watford.
According to O Dia, Flamengo are now gathering all official bids to decide what they’re going to do with Muniz, and want things sorted until the next weekend, as his agents are in Rio to get a transfer as soon as possible.
