With 13 days to train and rest after the classico, a sense of normality has enveloped Palmeiras. The newsworthy events are few. Not necessarily is a bad thing.

Gabriel Jesus’ former manager Fábio Caran and Palmeiras have reached an agreement whereby the club receives a further R$ 20 million (US$ 6.4 million) originating from the player’s sale to Manchester City.

Initially entitled to receive only 30% of the R$ 121 million, Palmeiras increased the club’s percentage to 50% due to the manager and his wife having breached the contract by forming a partnership with two other entrepreneurs without the club’s consent. The agreement ends a yearlong imbroglio in the courts. Caran, originally to receive R$ 28 million, thus ends up with R$ 8 million.

Felipe Melo seems likely to return to the Palmeiras squad. No offers from abroad has surfaced and there are some legal aspects to consider if Melo would continuously be kept separate from the rest of the men. Players seem fine with a reintegration; the main concern is rather as to what point coach Cuca and Melo will be able to reconcile.

The defensive midfielder is on a contract with Palmeiras until end of 2019.

Following Vitinhos’ loan deal to Barcelona B, a number of young Palmeiras players have followed suit, negotiated with European clubs.  

In yesterday’s last day of the European transfer window, Emerson Muller of the U20 squad was negotiated, for an undisclosed amount, on a four-year contract with Suisse club FC Lugano. In any future transfer of the midfielder, Palmeiras are entitled to 20%.

The previous day, 18-year-old forward Gabriel Barbosa was negotiated on a one-year loan deal with Italian top-division club Spal.

Centre-back Gabriel Estigarribia and forward Matheus Iacovelli have also left, both for good: the defender is with Alavés of Spain, and the forward with Estoril, Portugal.

There are rumours Miguel Borja could be open for a transfer, concerned about limited play time at Palmeiras and the risk of losing his spot in Colombia’s national squad ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Both Cuca and Galiotte have however reiterated that Borja is very focused and determined to make it work at Palmeiras. The player himself acknowledge difficulties in adapting to the Brazilian style of play and Cuca’s philosophy, but guarantees he is staying. Borja has four more years to his contract.

The pre-Libertadores tension is palpable, especially after last Sunday’s defeat in the Paulistão. We’ll keep it light, OK?

The other day, Palmeiras announced two new signings, both 17 years old forwards, for their U20 squad:

Bruno Camacho scored 29 goals for Grêmio Prudente in last year’s U17 São Paulo championship. 183 centimetres tall and with a good physique, the kid will be interesting to watch. Contract runs until the end of this year.

Matheus Iacovelli was top scorer in last year’s U17 Carioca championship, and runner up in the U17 Brazil Cup the same year, playing for Flamengo. His initial stay at Palmeiras is four months, the contract subject to renewal for an additional two year.

Two Palmeiras players have been called up to serve the Brazilian U20 National: keeper Daniel Fuzzatto and forward Kaue. On 12 March, they are expected at the Granja training facilities.

Palmeiras president Nobre was one of three chosen to represent CONMEBOL at the FIFA elections in Zurich end of last week. This is not the first time Nobre takes on international duties parallel to his role at Palmeiras: in 2013, he headed the Brazilian delegation during a friendly against Italy.
