Fenerbahçe announced on Tuesday the hiring of Brazilian central defender Gustavo Henrique, on a permanent basis, after an agreement with Flamengo.
He is a player that Jorge Jesus knows well, with whom he worked in Brazil, and it was a wish expressed by the Portuguese coach, after signing defensive midfielder Willian Arão (Flamengo).
The 29-year-old is expected later in the evening in Istanbul, where he will undergo the usual medical examinations before signing a contract.
Born in São Paulo, this will be Gustavo Henrique’s first experience outside of Brazil, and in his career he has only represented Santos and Flamengo.

Oyuncu detayli görüsmeler için bugün aksam saatlerinde Istanbul’a gelecektir.
Kamuoyunun bilgisine sunariz.
