Young goalkeeper Gabriel Brazao is close to joining Santos, with Inter Milan to retain a percentage of his resale value.
This according to Brazilian outlet GloboEsporte, via FCInterNews.
During the summer transfer window, goalkeeper Brazao joined Serie B side Ternana on loan.
This is not the first time that the Brazilian has gone out on loan since joining Inter in 2019.
Far from it, Brazao has gone out on a number of loan spells.
There have been loan moves to Spanish duo Albacete and Real Oviedo. Both were in the Segunda Division, in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons respectively.
Then Brazao went back to his boyhood club Cruzeiro on another loan.
However, a serious knee injury cut that loan move short.
Therefore Brazao spent the first half of last season recovering from injury.
Then when fit, the young keeper joined SPAL in Serie B on loan. There he found playing time relatively hard to come by, but did make one league appearance.
Brazao On The Verge Of Santos Move – Inter To Retain Percentage Of Resale
Santos have been aiming to reinforce ahead of their upcoming season in the Brazilian second division.
One position in which the Brazilian giants have looked to improve is in goal.
And the availability of Brazao given the 23-year-old’s relative lack of playing time in European football is something that Santos have taken note of.
Therefore, the Brazilian club moved. And both Inter and Brazao and his representatives are ready to get the deal done.
GloboEsporte report that Brazao will fly to Brazil today.
The 23-year-old will then officially terminate his contract with Inter by mutual consent.
This will leave Brazao free to join Santos. He should complete his move tomorrow.
GloboEsporte report that Santos will only own 70% of Brazao’s economic rights, however.
Inter will still retain a percentage of future resale, in order to still be able to potentially cash in on the player in the future.
