hey Corinthians The hiring of 27-year-old right-back Rafael Ramos, who was based in Santa Clara (Portugal), should be announced in the coming days. The Portuguese player has already arrived in Brazil and has passed the orthopedic and cardiological examination. Reinforcement was a sign of coach Vitor Pereira, for a state of contention with Fagner, as Joo Pedro did not like it and his contract expires in June.
However, the Corinthians Board has until next Tuesday (12th) to file the write-back in the CBF’s BID (Daily Newsletter), as the recruitment deadline ends on this day. The new transfer window will not reopen until July. After regularization, Rafael Ramos will be able to compete in the Brazilian Championship and the Copa do Brasil. In Libertadores, he will be registered only if the club advances to the Round of 16.
The Portuguese had a contract with Santa Clara until June and would not renew it. However, the Corinthians had to negotiate for the athlete’s early release. Its pre-arrival values were not disclosed by either side. In the current season, the right-back played 29 matches for the Portugal team.
Rafael Ramos played in the youth categories of Sporting and Benfica. As a professional, he defended Orlando City and Chicago Fire from the United States for three and a half years. He played one season in Twente (Holland), before signing with Santa Clara.
