Kanu is close to Mexican football, but there is still the possibility of saying goodbye to Botafogo on the pitch. The negotiation between Alvinegro and Cruz Azul-MEX found uncertainty regarding the deadlines and the defender’s desire is to enter the field against Fluminense, next Sunday, at 20:30, for the Brazilian Championship, if not yet the hammer has been struck. officially.
The desire of the defender is to play the classic if he has not yet signed with the Mexican team. Kanu wants to help Botafogo, who is going through an almost irreversible situation in terms of relegation.
The negotiation will be a loan with option to purchase. If the green light appears in the negotiation, Kanu immediately travels to Mexico to undergo examinations and report to Cruz Azul, as the transfer period to Mexico closes in late January.
Both teams face a small problem in terms of possible payment terms for the defender’s final purchase. Botafogo made a counter-proposal in relation to the first issues presented by Cruz Azul, which has not yet responded. The values, however, are already set: Alvinegro can put more than $ 20 million in his pocket with the deal.
At first, Kanu was not going to the party because of the negotiation. With this uncertainty, the defender wants to “take advantage of the gap” to help General Severiano’s club until the last minute. However, the presence of the athlete against Fluminense is not guaranteed: even with the will of the defender, the board can choose to save him to avoid a possible injury and, consequently, the end of the negotiation.
