Gremio Vice President: "Luan better than G. Barbosa or G. Jesus"
Inter have been linked to Luan, Gremio forward in recent days. To find out that is going on, FC Inter News has contacted Odorico Roman, the Gremio vice president.
In Italy, they said that Inter have their eyes on Luan. Many want the player.
“He is a great player.”
Confirmation that you have spoken with the Nerazzurri?
“There are many teams interested in Luan, from all over Europe. There is nothing concrete and so I cannot name these clubs. It would not be fair to publicly express their intention.”
At least tell us the countries these teams are in.
“England, Spain, France, Italy, Russia and Germany.”
So how much is he worth?
“Luan is a very strong player, a rare talent. He was the protagonist with the Brazilian national team at the Olympics. He is not being appreciated in Europe as much as Gabriel Barbosa or Gabriel Jesus but in my opinion, he is better than both. Maybe because he is 24 years old and there is the fear of him not being able to adapt to football in other countries fast enough. But yes he does have qualities. So in terms of value, I don’t think his value is that far away from that of Gabigol or G. Jesus. He played in the Olympics and is currently the best forward here in Brazil.”
Are you willing to sell him right now?
“For us, the ideal situation would be selling him but keeping Luan here until the end of the Brazilian championship in December.”
