Fabrício Bruno will not leave Flamengo. This Thursday, the defender refused the proposal from West Ham, from England, and chose to remain at the red-and-black club. In addition to all the financial issues, which weighed heavily when making his decision, the player considered the fact that his wife, dental surgeon Ana Clara, was pregnant with the couple's second child.

With one child two-year-old Lucca, the couple would have to move to London immediately if Fabrício accepted West Ham's offer. They assessed that the proposal was not financially advantageous enough to justify the move in the middle of the pregnancy. Together for more than three years, the defender and Ana Clara made their civil marriage official in November 2023.




NEGOTIATION ALMOST AGREE< /p>

The negotiations between Flamengo and West Ham were practically all agreed. However, the English club's salary proposal, which was not significantly higher than what Fabrício receives at Flamengo, was a determining factor in canceling the operation. Furthermore, the contract with West Ham would be valid until the middle of 2028, while his current contract with Flamengo runs until the end of the same year.

The values ​​offered to Flamengo, in the region of 15 million of euros with bonuses, were considered excellent, and the Rio club had given approval for the negotiation. However, the possible transfer divided the board and the coaching staff, who did not want to lose the player.



CELEBRATION FOR PERMANENCE

Fabrício Bruno is an absolute starter and plays a leadership role in the red and black locker room. His stay was celebrated by some members of the team, especially coach Tite, who sees the defender as a fundamental piece for the team's success.

The young right-back Wesley, from Flamengo, is in the sights of European clubs who see great potential in the player. According to information from journalist Julio Miguel Neto, several teams from the old continent are interested in a loan from Wesley, with the option to purchase at the end of the contract.

These European clubs are keeping an eye on the young man's talent athlete and believe he could adapt quickly to European football. However, Flamengo has no plans to release Wesley at this time. The absence of Varela, who will be away due to the Copa América dispute, makes Wesley's presence even more crucial for the Rio team.


FLAMENGO HAS A NEW JOB FOR WESLEY


The stance from Flamengo is clear: Wesley will only leave the club if a purchase proposal appears that he cannot refuse. Until that happens, the right-back will continue defending the red and black colors.

The Flamengo coach plans to give Wesley more opportunities in the next games. This means the player will have more time on the field and will be able to show his full potential. The expectation is that he will increasingly establish himself as an important piece in the starting team.

However, the defender did not reach a favorable salary agreement with the English team and withdrew from negotiations.

“It is an extremely private decision, there will be the right time to speak. about this. What I would like to make clear is that I am extremely happy here and I will continue working for the benefit of my club”, said Fabrício Bruno, in an interview with GE.

CONTRACT OFFERED BY WEST HAM< West Ham offered around 15 million euros (R$86 million) to Mais Querido. O Rubro-Negro judged the value to be above average for a 28-year-old player and quickly accepted the proposal. However, as the salary offered was close to that of Flamengo, and the cost of living in London is higher than in Rio de Janeiro, Fabrício Bruno decided to stay. Furthermore, the fact that his wife was pregnant also had an impact.

FABRÍCIO BRUNO AT FLAMENGO

Fabrício Bruno has been one of the highlights of Flamengo since 2022, when it arrived at Mais Querido. The defender is essential for the team and was called up by Dorival Júnior for friendlies against England and Spain, where he played 90 minutes of each match. 

In addition, Fabrício Bruno was also essential in Flamengo's 6-1 victory over Vasco, where Mais Querido became the leader of the Brasileirão. Therefore, Rubro-Negro will take the field next Thursday (13th), at 8pm, against Grêmio.
