Gabigol on Cruzeiro radar

After Santos, Sao Paulo and Flamengo, now Cruzeiro have emerged as candidates to take Inter flop Gabriel Barbosa on loan.

The striker cost €29.5m to sign from Santos in the summer of 2016, but after failing to get a single Serie A start, he was sent to Benfica.

He has struggled for playing time there too and the 21-year-old now wants a return to Brazil.

Santos said they would only play Gabigol if Inter had to pay the entirety of his salary, while Sao Paulo and Flamengo are also interested.

Sao Paulo open to Gabigol

While Santos are refusing to pay any of Gabriel Barbosa’s wages during a loan, Sao Paulo and Flamengo are better options for Inter.

The forward was bought from Santos for €29.5m in August 2016, but loaned out to Benfica after failing to make a single Serie A start.

As Gabigol is not playing regularly in Portugal either, it’s increasingly likely he will return to Brazil in January.

Santos: 'We won't pay for Gabigol'

Santos President Jose Carlos Peres confirms they will only take Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa back if Inter pay his wages. “We don’t want to spend anything.”

The striker was bought from Santos in August 2016 for €29.5m, but never made a Serie A start and is now struggling for playing time during his loan spell at Benfica too.

A return to Brazil and his hometown club is an option, but one that offers precious few incentives for the Nerazzurri.

Santos want Gabigol back

Santos want to bring back Gabriel Barbosa, reports in Brazil suggest, but Inter would have to pay most of his wages.

The striker joined the Nerazzurri for €33.5m in the summer of 2016, but failed to make a single Serie A start and scored just one goal.

That saw the Brazilian, who is known as Gabigol, loaned to Benfica for the season, but aside from two cup appearances he’s managed just 43 minutes between the league and Champions League.

Report: Betis want Gabigol

Spanish side Real Betis are reportedly pushing hard to bring in Inter outcast Gabriel Barbosa.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Betis boss Quique Setien is a long-time admirer of Gabigol, having tried to sign him for Las Palmas last summer.

However, the newspaper warns the Brazilian forward is still intent on re-joining Santos in January.

The 21-year-old’s career has taken a huge dip since a €29.5m move to the Nerazzurri in August 2016, while a loan spell to Benfica has yielded just 26 minutes of football.

“We know about Ausilio coming here, and we’re planning to meet him next week,” Luiz Taveira, a spokesman for the Brazilian club, told Calciomercato.com.
