Atlético-MG reached an agreement with businessman Giuliano Bertolucci to end a legal dispute opened by a football agent. Bertolucci called Gallo before the court in Minas Gerais and the National Chamber of Dispute Resolution (CNRD), an organization affiliated with the CBF. TJMG was valued at R$6 million, while values in CNRD are confidential.
The agreement was informed by GE and confirmed by LANCE. The actions brought by the businessman were related to the sale of striker Yummy Chara, the Portland Timbers of the United States and defender Bremer to Torino, Italy, in which the agent would be entitled to a commission for the business.
Chara was sold for US$6 million, with the rights to the protector being negotiated at €5.6 million.
Gallo now needs to resolve another pending issue, this time with another famous businessman in the middle of football: Andre Curie. He charges the club R$50 million as commission in court. The two sides met and tried to reach a consensus.
Curry managed to block the Brazilian Championship prize pool of around $33 million to pay off the debt. However, the club was released. In another action, the potential amount was blocked in terms of future sales of Arana, Guga and Allen. The club tries to overturn the court’s decision.
