Flamengo, Fluminense and Palmeiras have joined forces and are lobbying to be considered top seeds in the Super World Cup 2025. The trio's argument is based on the premise that, if the Champions League champions have this privilege, the winners of the Libertadores should also enjoy the same condition.

The president of Conmebol, Alejandro Domínguez, has already started conversations with the clubs and committed to forwarding the request to FIFA. Football's highest governing body informed its members that the draw for the Super Club World Cup groups will take place between June and July 2024, one year before the competition.


Initially scheduled to take place only in December this year, the new format of the tournament will feature 32 participants and will have its first edition in the United States, from June 15 to July 13, 2025.


Among the 32 participants, 21 are already guaranteed. Of the six representatives from South America, Palmeiras, Flamengo and Fluminense stand out as champions of the 2021, 2022 and 2023 Libertadores, respectively. The other participants include clubs from Europe, North and Central America, Africa, Asia and Oceania.

BILLIONAIRE REVENUES FOR PARTICIPANTS

FIFA management projects revenue of US$2.5 billion (R$12.4 billion) for the new Club World Cup. The tournament will be quadrennial and will have 32 participants. The clubs will be divided into eight groups of four teams, with the top two from each going through to the round of 16, and from then on the clashes will be eliminatory, until the final.

German champions for the first time in history and two games away from completing an entire season without suffering a single defeat, Bayer Leverkusen has become the sensation of European football despite having a salary bill similar to that of Flamengo.

According to "Capology", a website that is a reference in financial matters in international football, Atalanta's opponent in the Europa League final, today, from 4pm (Brasília time), spends 63.4 million euros (R $352.3 million) per season with player remuneration.

The value is very similar to the cost of the Flamengo squad. Last year, the richest club in Brazil used R$339 million of its budget to pay salaries. In 2024, the tendency is for this cost to rise at least a little.


Poor... for Europe

With the salary bill at the same level as of a Brazilian team, Leverkusen spends much less on the football department than clubs that were surpassed on the field by them throughout the season.

Bayern Munich, owner of a hegemony of 11 years in the Bundesliga until being beaten by Xabi Alonso's men, paying 273.4 million euros per year (R$ 1.5 billion) and salaries. The expenditure of Borussia Dortmund, Germany's representative in the Champions League decision, is around 121.3 million euros (R$ 673.3 million).


In addition to them, RB Leipzig also has a more expensive squad than the "aspirin team": 87.8 million euros (R$ 487.3 million). In other words, Leverkusen, which has already made history due to its performance in the current season, is only the fourth most expensive team in Germany.

Most expensive players

< According to "Capology", Spanish left-back Alejandro Grimaldo and Czech center forward Patrik Schick are Leverkusen's two highest-paid players. The salary of each of them (6 million euros per season, or R$33.3 million) exceeds that of any Flamengo athlete. Making history

Leverkusen's unbeaten run has now lasted 51 matches and is the longest in the history of European football.

The German team lost for the last time in their farewell to the last edition of the German Bundesliga (3-0 to Bochum, on May 27th). Afterwards, they accumulated 42 wins and had nine draws.

To complete an entire unbeaten season, Leverkusen only needs to "survive" two more games: the Europa League final and the German Cup final, against Kaiserslautern, from the second division, on Saturday.

If they don't lose any of these games (not even on penalties), Leverkusen will also close 2023/24 with three titles, as they were crowned German champions in the middle April, with five advance rounds.

The Flamengo player's father, Valdemir Silva, spilled the beans on Instagram on Monday (20), posing with the family doggo and talking about falsehood. “A thousand times putting a dog in your house instead of certain people who call themselves friends. Think about it”, he said, limiting the comments.



In the comments, some fans disagreed with the businessman's position: “It's just your son to do the right thing and stop disrespecting the club that gave him everything. The guy may have been wrong to publish the photo, but Gabriel was wrong to wear another club shirt even in his house!”, posted one. erase nothing he ever did.

I keep thinking about the person who has all the freedom to be at the guy's house, drinking for free! , eat and do that!! Burning yourself for nothing”, wrote one. Everything in life is learning. This game will change. Hugs to our Gabi’s family”, wished another. “The purest truth”, supported a third.

After speaking out on social media, the Flamengo player spoke to UOL and revealed the behind-the-scenes of the click, which caused the loss of the number 10 shirt and application of a fine by the club. In the chat, the athlete also took the opportunity to admit his mistake and apologize. “First, I made a mistake. I think it's making mistakes, apologizing, knowing that I made a mistake. But at the moment the photo came out, I was very perplexed. I didn't understand. This period that I spent without speaking, without speaking out, was a period that I took to think”, he explained.


And he continued his outburst: “Of course, in the emotion of the facts, my first thought was to deny . As I talk to my friends, I collect shirts, I exchange shirts, be it national team shirts, basketball shirts, and I ended up receiving and wearing this shirt”, he reported, before adding: “As I said, I made a mistake, I apologize. But it was an act that I didn't think about that much. I didn't know all this was going to happen. I would never wear a shirt to be able to disrespect Flamengo's shirt, Flamengo's fans. This is an act that exists in many outskirts, wearing several shirts. It’s about apologizing and saying it won’t happen again”, he assured.

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.
