Sending Gabriel Barbosa to Flamengo is a strategic move by Inter
No return to Europe for Gabriel Barbosa as the player will continue his career in Brazil, going from Santos to Flamengo. Is this a strategic move by Inter?
That is the question asked by the Gazzetta dello Sport which states that “the pressing of Flamengo was decisive and constant for over a month, but at first, it was struggling to gain ground. Inter wanted to get about €20M from his sale and West Ham were also interested. The English inquired for the player but only on loan. And once understood that the only possible solution was another loan, Inter decided to please the player, perhaps putting themselves in an advantageous position for Lincoln, 18-year-old striker who is liked by many European clubs.”
