With Gabigol unavailable due to suspension due to doping, Flamengo is already in charge of exploring new alternatives in the market during the national window that will run from April 1st to 19th. According to information from journalist Uriel Igut, from Rádio Pura Pasion, the name of Eduardo Vargas, currently at Atlético-MG, is being analyzed by the red-black board.

Under Felipão's command, Vargas was not even listed in Galo. Previously, Fortaleza showed interest in the Chilean striker, but the player chose to remain in Belo Horizonte. Now, with Flamengo's possible interest, the situation could change.


Signed by Atlético Mineiro in November 2020, Vargas has already played 132 games for Galo. According to numbers provided by SofaScore, the striker found the net 24 times, in addition to distributing 12 assists from 2020 to the current moment of the season.

Alternating between starting and reserve at Atlético-MG, Eduardo Vargas has an average 180 minutes to participate in a goal. Therefore, for a renowned striker in the South American market, the index is well below expectations.

This coming Saturday (30), from 5pm (Brasília time), Nova Iguaçu and Flamengo enter on the field to play the first match of the 2024 Carioca Championship final.

A target of Flamengo in the first transfer window of the season, midfielder André Franco was removed and should no longer take the field for FC Porto. The midfielder and three other athletes started training separately from the squad after the 2-2 draw with Famalicão, on Saturday (13), and coach Sérgio Conceição made clear his irritation with the players when commenting on the decision.

< “Now do I have to justify my work? Talking here creates situations where there is nothing to say. I can decide to have six or seven players do a specific job, at different times. There is no more to say. To play for Porto, it is not enough to have a contract, whether to play or work”, said the coach at a press conference this Tuesday (16).

According to the newspaper Record, the club's board of directors was very uncomfortable with the performance of the quartet in recent games. Therefore, in a joint decision with the coach, the players were removed and should no longer enter the field until the end of the season, in May.




Flamengo tried to sign André Franco at the beginning of the season and, still interested in the athlete, they could benefit from the problems with the club. The team offered 4 million euros (R$21.5 million, at the price at the time), but Porto refused and the deal did not move forward. The red-black objective was to present a new offer in the transfer window that will open in July.

The information is that Porto would originally like values ​​between 7 and 8 million euros to release the player, something around R$39 and R$44.7 million. The expectation, however, is that the team will relax its demands in the next window to find a new club for the athlete. Fla will most likely try to reinforce.


André Franco played 23 games this season, 12 as a starter, with one goal and three assists. The midfielder has an average pass accuracy of 89%, 1.7 ball recoveries per match and stands out mainly for his ability to defend his own area and attack the opponent's field with intensity.

Marcos Braz commented on the possibility of Flamengo going to market in the middle of the year

Flamengo spent R$ 161 million and closed its squad for the start of the season with four reinforcements: De La Cruz, Viña, Léo Ortiz and Carlinhos. However, the group still suffers from some gaps, such as the right-back and midfield, and the directors admit the possibility of new signings in the mid-year window.

During the presentation of striker Carlinhos, last Friday (12), football vice Marcos Braz stated that the team is always monitoring the market. He assured that Fla will make new moves if they lose an athlete or coach Tite makes a specific request.

It is worth remembering that Fla tried to sign André Franco and Maycon, from Corinthians, before the window closed . Offers that indicate the technical committee's assessment of the need for another midfielder in the squad.

DISCOVERY ABOUT CARLINHOS DEPARTURE TO FLA

Carlos Victor demonstrated that he did not felt very sorry for Carlinhos' departure and is happy for the player's success. The coach reveals what he did when he found out about the striker's transfer.

“At that moment, I had left the hotel and they were at supper. I went there for supper, everyone had already left, but I had already seen the phone number in the press. I said, it's over, boy. They will take the center forward. Carlinhos was sitting there and he said, 'I actually received a call. The calm, mild, serene guy. We started chatting, more of our own stuff there. ‘Calm down, Carlinhos? Calm down, professor’. Football doesn't give you much time to smile a lot or cry a lot. Let's move on”,

CARLINHOS PREMIERE AND NEXT MATCH

With a new goal from the striker Pedro, Flamengo achieved its first victory in the Copa Libertadores 2024 by defeating Chilean Palestino 2-0 this Wednesday (10) , at Maracanã, in Rio de Janeiro, for the second round of Group E. Flamengo provisionally leads its group with four points while waiting for the game between Bolívar (who has 3 points) and Millonarios (who has 1) this Thursday ( 11) in La Paz. 

Just like Mais Querido, the other two Brazilian teams that played in the continental competition won their respective ties: Atlético-MG and São Paulo. Galo took the lead in Group G of the Libertadores after beating Rosario Central (ARG) 2-1, this Wednesday, in Belo Horizonte.


Sao Paulo suffered, but scored twice at the end and beat Cobresal (CHI) 2-0, also this Wednesday. The Libertadores Group B game was held at Morumbi. With little creativity, Tricolor had difficulty breaking through the Chilean defense. André Silva, at 81, opened the scoring, and Calleri, at 87, scored the second. São Paulo reaches three points in Group B, the same score as Talleres. Cobresal remains with just one point.
