Ex-Brazil midfielder Felipe Melo on Flamengo radar
Rio de Janeiro, Oct 29 (IANS) Flamengo are among three Brazilian clubs interested in signing Inter Milan midfielder Felipe Melo, according to local media reports.
After playing 28 matches in his first season at the San Siro in 2015-16, Melo has made just two first-team appearances since August, reports Efe.
Flamengo have reportedly been in talks with the 33-year-old’s representatives since July while Corinthians and Sao Paulo have also shown interest in recent weeks.
Melo’s current contract with Inter Milan expires in August 2017, meaning he will be free to negotiate with other clubs in February.
The former Fiorentina and Juventus player is also understood to have drawn interest from Chinese Super League clubs.
