Flamengo is racing against time to count on its newest reinforcement. Defender Léo Ortiz, signed for €8.5 million between fixed and goals, arrives in Rio de Janeiro this Tuesday (5). The player must train with the group on Wednesday (6). The club's idea is to run with the athlete's registration so that he can play in the Carioca semifinals. The registration deadline ends on Thursday (7).

Journalist Venê Casagrande confirmed that Léo Ortiz will arrive in Rio de Janeiro this Tuesday (5). The 28-year-old player was playing for Red Bull Bragantino. After around two months of negotiations, the two clubs reached an agreement for the transfer to take place. Vice President of Football Marcos Braz was happy with the resolution of the case.


The presence of Léo Ortiz in Flamengo's squad became even more urgent, as starter Fabrício Bruno could be out of action. He suffered a blow at the end of the first half of the 3-0 victory over Madureira. Exams on the face showed a fractured nose. The defender is not 100% confirmed for the first semi-final, Saturday (9), against Fluminense.


The right-handed defender who arrives from Red Bull Bragantino is Flamengo's third reinforcement in this early-year window. Lé Ortiz arrives to fight with Fabrício Bruno for the starting spot. Interestingly, the two played together at Red Bull before Fabrício signed with Rubro-Negro in 2022.

Uruguayans Nicolás De La Cruz and Matías Viña were Flamengo's two other reinforcements at the beginning of 2024. De La Cruz is already Tite's undisputed starter, now playing deeper in midfield. Viña will still have to compete for a place with Ayrton Lucas, but he had good performances in the matches he played in.

While recovering to return to Flamengo, Pulgar awaits the club's response regarding his contract renewal. The player's agents presented numbers after the last FIFA date, but the red-black board has not yet responded to the proposal, and believes it has time.

With a contract until the end of 2025, the Chilean has been gaining value since last year, especially after Tite's arrival, and businessman Fernando Felicevich signaled to Flamengo that some international surveys had already taken place. So far, the Rio club has guaranteed itself in the contract and ruled out the sale.


According to the player's staff, however, there is a real risk that the player will be traded until the beginning of next year if there is no appreciation. At the moment, although he is an absolute starter, Pulgar still has one of the lowest salaries among midfield athletes. Flamengo has prioritized renewing its base jewels, such as midfielder Igor Jesus, in the same position, and striker Werton.


Since Pulgar can sign a pre-contract with another club from the middle of the year Comes, the board will need to opt for renewal by the end of the year or a possible sale at the beginning of 2025, when there will be the last opportunity to make the low investment count and make a profit in the operation.

Currently, Allan , who cost much more than Pulgar (9 million euros against 2.8 million euros) and earns a much higher salary and is an immediate alternative if the Chilean is traded. Flamengo rules out negotiating Pulgar in the middle of the current year, despite there being harassment, and the agents' idea is to resolve the stay before the Copa América, when there should be appreciation.

The Copa do Brasil is notable for paying good values ​​to the 92 participating teams – the total value to this season's champion could reach R$96.39 million. Whoever advances to the round of 16, for example, will pocket R$3.465 million. At 9:30 pm this Wednesday (22), Amazonas and Flamengo will fight for the place and, of course, for the money. The amount, however, would have completely different impacts on the two clubs. The value represents a lot for the Manaus team and is almost negligible for the Rio team, which, by winning the first duel 1-0, at Maracanã, has the advantage of a draw tonight.

The financial disparity becomes clear when comparing salary sheets. Amazonas spends per month, according to "ge" , around R$ 1 million in salaries. The award therefore represents more than three months of salary, which includes well-known athletes, such as Jô, Dentinho and Sassá. For Flamengo, the award represents just over four days of salary. payments, which are around R$ 25 million per month, according to a revelation made by manager Bruno Spindel, at the end of last year.

In this edition of the Copa do Brasil alone, Amazonas has already collected, in prizes, almost R$ $5 million. The team received just over R$1.3 million just for participating in the first phase and another R$1.47 million for eliminating Independente-AP by qualifying for the third phase, leaving Maringá behind. , pocketed another R$ 2.205 million. Rubro-Negro profited "only" R$ 2.205 million.

As it is competing in the CONMEBOL Libertadores, the club entered the competition directly in this third phase and has already accumulated the prize of participation. If they are champions, the Flamengo team will earn, in total, R$ 93.135 million.


The duel between Amazonas and Flamengo will be played at the Arena da Amazônia. The 1-0 winning goal for Rubro-Negro in the first game was scored by Pedro, in a match that was marked by Gabigol's return to the field after being suspended for alleged attempted fraud in an anti-doping test and by booing and insulting Tite for part of the Flamengo fans. Some fans were irritated by the performance and the meager score. The result gives the Flamengo fans the advantage of a draw. If Amazonas wins by one goal difference, the place will be determined on penalties.
