Santos agreed to hire Luan this Friday. The midfielder is on loan from Corinthians until the end of this year’s Campeonato Brasileiro, with an option to renew for another season. According to president Andres Rueda, the hiring was seen as a market opportunity.
“Luan was a great market opportunity, an experienced player, who was once the King of America, Olympic champion and was approved by coach Lisca. We believe in his potential. Luan, welcome!” Said the rep. .
Peixe will pay nothing to be able to count on the athlete. This proposal came from Timão himself, who found no interest in the professional in this market window. The team of the capital, therefore, will take care of the payment of salaries, which are around 700 thousand R $.
Luan currently has no physical problems, as revealed by the June report of this year. This season the midfielder entered the field with only three chances: against Santo André, São Bernardo and Botafogo-SP, also in Campeonato Paulista.
Corinthians acquired him for four seasons at a cost of R $ 28.9 million (50% of the rights) and had found it very difficult, due to the athlete’s high salary, to find a club that would accept the player, even on loan. .
In addition to Luan, Santos also announced the hiring of Nathan this afternoon. The 20-year-old right-back, who was at Boavista, from Portugal, was hired on a permanent basis by Peixe and signed a contract valid until 31 December 2026.
