Flamengo would be ready to sign a check for 16 million euros to acquire between 50 and 60% of the rights of Gerson. OM would demand 20 million euros to obtain 80% of the player’s rights.
According to the information relayed by the platform GE, OM set the price for Gerson at 20 million euros, to sell 80% of the player’s rights. Flamengo would only offer 16 million euros, for 50 to 60% of the rights of the midfielder.
