Still in relation to the gaucho club, striker Thiago Galhardo opened the game and explained why he refused to return to the Porto Alegre squad.
In Europe, the news revolves around Cristiano Ronaldo, whose name was vetoed by Chelsea’s coach. Meanwhile, an Arab team made a billionaire proposal to the Portuguese.
Another speculation in international football involves Arsenal, who after taking Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, want another player from the team coached by Pep Guardiola.
The report highlights the main news of the day in the ball market.
INTER PROBE BENEDETTO
Internacional monitors the situation of Boca Juniors striker Darío Benedetto, 32. The Colorado team made an inquiry to know the conditions of an eventual agreement by him, but a real advance is considered unlikely.
Benedetto has a feud with Juan Roman Riquelme, former player and manager of Boca Juniors, due to payment of awards, the same problem faced by defender Izquierdoz and other important members of the group.
However, the player declared, in an interview granted this Wednesday (12), in Argentina, that he would like to stay at the Buenos Aires club.
GALHARDO OPEN THE GAME
Thiago Galhardo was presented this Thursday (14) by Fortaleza and gave his first press conference.
On loan from Internacional until the end of the year, the striker revealed some details that made him leave the Rio Grande do Sul club in 2021 towards Celta de Vigo, from Spain, and also what made him refuse the proposal to return.
“The reason for my departure was a problem I had with an athlete. For me, he doesn’t have the character, the personality. I think this was identified later, by the other athletes, especially with the arrival of new athletes. […] I did not want to [voltar].
A lot of people called me inside, not only players but also staff, asking me to come back. But it was my goal not to return to the club,” he said, who chose not to reveal names.

SANTOS LOOKS FOR DEFENDER
Santos should go to the market for a defender after selling Kaiky to Almería (ESP), loaning Robson to Boavista (POR) and amicably terminating Emiliano Velázquez, who agreed with Juarez (MEX).
The alvinegro team only has three defenders at the moment: Maicon, Eduardo Bauermann and Luiz Felipe.
Maicon even felt a calf problem and will not be available against Avai on Saturday (16), for the Brazilian Championship. Alex, back after loan to Famalicão (POR), can only be registered in the reopening of the international transfer window, starting on Monday (18).
While looking for another defender, Santos must promote one from the base. Derick, Léo Zabala and Jair, from under-20, fight for this promotion.

MORE OUTPUTS IN THE GRÍMIO
Despite the presence in the G4 of Série B, Grêmio is preparing changes in its squad. After Benítez left for América-MG, the names of the time are Lucas Silva and Thiago Santos.

Currently, both Lucas and Thiago are reserves for the Rio Grande do Sul team. The arrival of Lucas Leiva makes it even more difficult to take advantage of both in the defensive roles of the midfield of the team coached by Roger Machado.
CHELSEA VETA TECHNICIAN CRISTIANO RONALDO, SAYS NEWSPAPER
