Corinthians have already begun thinking about plan B for the future of defender Bruno Méndez. His loan spell with Internacional will expire in June and so far the Rio Grande do Sul club has yet to agree a deal for the players.
As judged by Sports Gazette, Alvinegro agreed to negotiate and even reduced the cost of the defense, which is 6 million dollars (R $ 30.6 million), by 50% of the rights. However, due to disagreements among the Colorado board, there are some negative sentiments about the current discussion.
In addition, Corinthians are surprised by Inter’s behavior, with some saying recently that they have spoken to the club São Paulo and that “what they will do” to the defender in Beira-Rio. It was the case of another athlete, Emílio Papaléo Zin.
Faced with the situation, Alvinegro practice lost hope of talks with the defender and Internacional, previously considered positive. The current idea is to return to the club or transfer to another club. Méndez contract runs until 2023 with Timão.
This Saturday, the two teams meet for the sixth edition of the Brazilian Championship, in Beira-Rio. If you want to put Bruno Méndez on the field, Inter will have to pay a fine of BRL 800,000, which should not happen. Market needs to be scaled.
Founded at the base of Montevideo Wanderers, Méndez arrived at Corinthians in 2019 and has a contract until 2023 with the Parque São Jorge club.
For Timão, there are 42 games played and one goal scored. He also made a phone call to the Uruguayan team and shared the thoughts of Alvinegro fans.
The year he played most for Corinthians was 2021, when he made 22 appearances. Then, and still because of competition in the club’s business, he borrowed money from Colorado.
If he returns to the Corinthians, Bruno Méndez will fight for the spot on the bench with the other players. If he was the starter at Inter, he would have had to “sweat” to win the jobs of Gil, João Victor, Raul Gustavo, Robson Bambu and even Bruno Melo, who was a defender and side. However, with the rotation planned by Vítor Pereira, it will probably increase the minutes of the sound.
This year, he has already played in three Brasileirão matches for Internacional and, if he enters the next four seasons, he will not be able to defend another club in the competition. However, this should not happen, either in the interest of the Corinthians or even the player himself.
