Santos had hoped to announce the return of Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa from Inter today, but it was postponed by red tape.
The striker was sold for €29.5m in the summer of 2016, but never received a single Serie A start, while his loan at Benfica hasn’t gone any better.
A comeback to Brazil is all decided, with Gabigol taking a pay cut to help the loan with option to buy go through smoothly.
