Official: Rodrigo Caio joins Flamengo

Rodrigo Caio was linked with Milan, Roma, Lazio and Napoli, but the Sao Paulo defender has officially joined Flamengo.

The 25-year-old centre-back has been on the radar of several Serie A clubs over the last couple of years.

It was believed January would be the right moment for him to finally make the switch to Europe and Italy.

However, Flamengo announced this weekend that a deal had formally been done.

Rodrigo Caio signed a contract to December 2023 and it’s believed the cost of the operation was €5m.

Roma are interested in Rodrigo Caio and Donny van de Beek, reports suggest, both of whom are Milan targets.

The Rossoneri have been heavily linked with Sao Paulo defender Caio, but so far technical director Leonardo is yet to close the deal.

It’s believed he’d be available for around €10m, and this morning’s Corriere dello Sport reports that Giallorossi are also interested.

Sporting director Monchi is also interested in Van de Beek, the 21-year-old Ajax midfielder who has also been linked with Milan.

Caio agent flies in for Milan

Sao Paulo defender Rodrigo Caio’s agent is believed to be in Italy to meet with Milan technical director Leonardo.

The Rossoneri have an injury crisis in defence, with Mattia Caldara and Mateo Musacchio out until 2019 and captain Alessio Romagnoli facing a month on the sidelines.

They have been heavily linked with the Brazilian centre-back, and calciomercato.com reports that agent Nick Arcuri touched down in Milan today.

The website believes that he will meet with Leonardo to see if a deal can be done, though Sao Paulo value him at €10m.

Milan approach Caio and Bailly

Milan continue to seek defensive reinforcements in January, with approaches for Rodrigo Caio of Sao Paulo and Manchester United’s Eric Bailly.

The Rossoneri are in the depth of an injury crisis, losing Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio, Mattia Caldara, Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura for at least a month, some as many as five months.

The biggest problems are in defence and director Leonardo is hard at work trying to find replacements.

Milan talks for Rodrigo Caio

Milan director Leonardo has reportedly met with San Paulo to discuss signing Rodrigo Caio, either for €8m or on loan with obligation to buy for €13m.

According to Sport Mediaset, negotiations are in full swing and there are different options on the table.

If the Rossoneri were to purchase the defender outright, the cost would be around €7-8m.

However, if they wanted to take him on loan with an obligation to buy at a later date, it would be far more expensive at €12-13m.

Milan face Caio competition

Milan reportedly face competition from Valencia and Zenit Saint Petersburg in their pursuit of Sao Paulo defender Rodrigo Caio.

The Rossoneri have lost Mattia Caldara to a torn thigh muscle, so may look to bolster their defence in January.

It was reported this week that they’re interested in the Brazilian international, and Corriere dello Sport believes he’d be available for around €15m.

There is plenty of competition for Rodrigo Caio’s signature though, with both Valencia and Zenit believed to be keen.

Caldara joined the Rossoneri from Juventus this summer, arriving as part of a swap deal with Leonardo Bonucci.

Caio or Caldara for Milan

Milan are said to be interested in Rodrigo Caio of Sao Paulo, as an alternative to Juventus’ Mattia Caldara.

Rossoneri captain Leonardo Bonucci wants to return to the Old Lady, so a deal is being worked on involving Caldara and Gonzalo Higuain.

According to Premium Sport, if the Bianconeri refuse to include the former as part of the deal, the Diavolo will turn to Caio.

The defender would cost around €15m, and has been capped four times by the Brazilian national team.
