The “plan A” of the board is to renew the loan until the middle of next year and, afterwards, with a more controlled economic situation, to exercise the right to purchase.
“Plan B”, in turn, will be used if Fiorentina makes the first option difficult. Then, the purchase of the athlete will be made, with the division of the value in several installments.
There is, of course, a chance for the Italian team to deny both alternatives. In the latter case, Fla would have to make the purchase in cash. However, top hats will try their best to avoid this.
According to sources in the staff of Pedro, the player’s will also helps in his stay, since he wants to continue in Gávea.
A person close to the athlete told the report that the athlete still dreams of success in Europe, but at the moment, his priority is another: to continue in Rubro-Negro, to become an idol of the fans and to reach the Brazilian team again.
In the current season, the center forward has already scored 16 goals in 30 matches for the Rio club.
