Fenerbahçe announced, this Tuesday, the hiring of Brazilian central defender Gustavo Henrique, on a permanent basis, after an agreement with Flamengo.
This is a player that Jorge Jesus knows well, with whom he worked in Brazil, and it was a wish expressed by the Portuguese coach, after signing the defensive midfielder Willian Arão (Flamengo).
The 29-year-old is expected later this evening in Istanbul, where he will undergo the usual medical examinations before signing a contract.
Born in São Paulo, this will be Gustavo Henrique’s first experience outside Brazil, and in his career he only represented Santos and Flamengo.
Our club has reached an agreement in principle with the player and his club for the transfer of Gustavo Henrique, who plays for Flamengo.
The actor will come to Istanbul today in the evening for detailed talks.
We present it to the public.
