The journalist Renato Maurício Prado expressed his opinion, sarcastically commenting on the player’s arrival after the failed interest of the São Paulo club in Gabigol from Flamengo. He criticized the management of Augusto Melo. After the end of the 2023 season, rumors emerged about a possible negotiation between Gabigol and Corinthians. The newly elected president, Augusto Melo, praised the player and did not deny the interest.
However, the player remains at Flamengo, where he has a contract until the end of the year. Pedro Raul, who was developed by Cruzeiro-RS, has played for Botafogo, Goiás, Atlético Goianiense, and Vasco. While at Vasco, the forward did not stand out last year and was eventually transferred to Toluca-MEX, where he played 19 matches and scored four goals.
