The Brazilian midfielder Felipe Melo categorically denied that he has conversations with Boca Juniors: “I am focused on Palmeiras“.
Exclusively with the program “Bola da Vez” by ESPN Brazil, the player clarified that his focus is on “continuing to win titles” with Verdão, facing the dispute of the Recopa Sudamericana against Defense and Justice and the Supercopa do Brasil, against Flamengo, in April.
“I saw some people in Twitter say that I was negotiating with other clubs. I have never negotiated with other clubs and I do not speak to anyone. I am focused on Palmeiras. We have two definitions ahead of us, which are unpublished trophies for us. I don’t even have time to think about anything else“said the footballer who will turn 38 on June 26.
“I do not talk to anyone. My goal is to win and keep winning titles at Palmeiras, to keep writing even more stories at Palmeiras, as well as my teammates. We will see what happens in the future. I do not speak, I did not open conversations with anyone. And I will never do it without listening to the club that I love, which is Palmeiras ”Added Felipe Melo, who on several occasions expressed his affection for Xeneize.
The former player of Flamengo, Cruzeiro, Fiorentina, Juventus, Inter and Galatasaray, among others, admitted that he will hear proposals from other teams if he does not renew the contract with Alviverde, since he plans to continue in activity for two or three more years.
“I have no doubt that if I don’t have a renewal with Palmeiras, I will have to make a decision and play for another club. I plan to play two or three more years”, Said the member of the Brazilian National Team at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, whose contract expires at the end of 2021.
“Speculation is always going to happen, as has happened throughout my career. Now, people who work in communication have to take responsibility and convey to the public what is true“, he concluded.
