In recent weeks, as many as five Brazilian clubs have tested waters to keep Gabriel Barbosa in Brazil. Specifically, according to Globoesporte, Corinthians and Flamengo are the most serious clubs for the Inter owned forward while Cruzeiro, Gremio and Palmeiras have only asked for information.
For his part, the top goalscorer of the league wants to give priority to the Nerazzurri, so much so that in his ideas, there is willingness to show up in training on January 7th. Then he will have an interview with the executives and will define the future. One that has two possibilities on the table: if Luciano Spalletti does not want him in the squad, the idea is to find a new team in Europe, on loan or on a permanent basis.
A third option must also be taken into consideration: another experience in his home country instead of going to China or Arab countries. If he decided to stay in Brazil, then Flamengo will have an advantage over Corinthians as the player does not want to join a rival of Santos.
