The full-back welcomes the Chilean’s signing at Mengao as his replacement. “I looked for information about him with Arturo Vidal,” he said.
Mauritius Island I would have everything agreed to land in Flamengo in the coming days. The Chilean side, who seemed to want to stay in Europe, would opt for the ‘Mengao’ and, in this way, would become the replacement of Rafinha, who decided to emigrate to Olympiakos in Greece.
The economic bet of the Brazilian team, apparently, far exceeded that made by teams such as Real Betis, Valencia, Valladolid or Boca, which also fought for their letter. The man from La Roja would sign for two and a half years in the squad led by the Spanish Domènec Torrent, who has just taken over to replace the Portuguese Jorge Jesús.
In that sense, the Brazilian Rafinha approved his possible hiring and indicated: “He is a great player. I looked for information about him with Arturo Vidal, his teammate from the Chilean National Team,” said the full-back, who shared a changing room with the Barcelona midfielder as he passed by Bayern Munich. “(Isla) He comes to a great club … He has a brilliant career and a lot of experience in Europe. He comes to one of the greatest in the world,” Rafinha closed.
“What we are doing at this moment was what was planned after Rafinha left. If we succeed with Isla, I think this concern will end,” said Bruno Spindel, executive director of Fla. “Isla She is an experienced athlete, two-time Copa América champion. I particularly like the Chilean player. In 2009 I signed Maldonado. ” Marco Braz, vice president of the institution, recalled.
