The news that Corinthians midfielder Gabriel Moscardo, 17, is negotiating his departure with Chelsea, moved social networks early this Thursday morning (31).
The information is from the journalist Bruno Andrade, from ‘UOL’, and reports that Timão would receive up to 25 million euros, plus 10% of a future sale of the athlete. Taking into account that the defensive midfielder has not yet reached the age of majority, Moscardo would remain at Corinthians until June of next year.
Among Corinthians fans, the sale of one of the great names that have emerged in recent seasons divides opinions. That’s because some Corinthians believe that Gabriel Moscardo’s pass could value more, while others believe that the value – the biggest transfer from the São Paulo club – will help the club pay its debts.
30 million euros to start negotiations.
And there’s no need to rush, if it’s not Chelsea, it’s going to be another great European club!

For me, it’s absurd that this board is selling all the club’s assets and nobody will do absolutely anything?

It’s ridiculous to sell Moscardo for less than 30m

Little …. 23 million and leave 20% there is fair …

It went up the other day and it’s already leaving… this club just makes me sad

If it comes out in Jun/2024 and Corinthians maintains a percentage, it’s a good sale, I’d only fight to increase it to close to 30 million euros

The sale is not bad, but it could be held and sold post temp 2024, it would be easy

21 million euros (possibly 25) for 70% I don’t think it’s a bad amount. The problem is that it’s never what they report, it’s always less

Gabriel Moscardo’s numbers for Corinthians
Moscardo played 29 games in the 2023 season with the Corinthians shirt. However, only 10 of them were among professionals. During this period, the defensive midfielder did not score goals, but he starred in great performances in the main squad.
A bet by Vanderlei Luxemburgo, the 17-year-old midfielder has a fundamental performance in the classification against Estudiantes, even with a collective performance far below that of Timão.
The player arrived at Corinthians in 2018, still in the under-13 category, and has defended the club since then. On his resume, Gabriel Moscardo has won an under-17 Paulista Championship, won in 2021.
The young promises sold by Duílio
One of the big demands of Bando de Loucos under the management of Duílio Monteiro Alves is the recurring sale of young players this season.
In addition to Moscardo, Murillo, who has an agreement with Nottingham Forest, Pedro, Gustavo Mantuan, Du Queiroz and Robert Renan, were negotiated with Zenit, from Russia.
In total, Corinthians earned BRL 86 million from sales of athletes to other clubs, coming close to reaching the target of BRL 90.1 million, set out in the club’s budget plan.
