No-one from Celtic has commented, confirmed or denied speculation about the defender but the issue is being reported in great detail in Brazil.
An earlier report claimed that the player was looking to have his contract cancelled due to unpaid wages but it seems that the whole issue is coming down to a split in fees between the club and the players agent.
Cruzeiro Esporte Clube explains that it has not received any official proposal from Celtic, Glasgow, Scotland, by defender Fabrício Bruno. The athlete’s agent, Fabio Mello, was at Toca da Raposa 2 in the company of Fabrício Bruno this week and met with the Club’s board, represented by the directors Marcelo Djian, Benecy Queiroz, Valdir Barbosa and the football vice Marcio Rodrigues.
Fabio Mello reported that he met with the club officers SCOTTISH in London, England, and was authorized to make a proposal for empr is seventh from January to June 2020, with Celtic paying 300,000 euros for the loan and 2, EUR 5 million if Fabrício Bruno was approved during this period.
With the amount of detail about the story it has to be assumed that Bruno has a European passport which would allow him to play in Scotland.
Kris Ajer and Chris Jullien have been Celtic’s first choice central defensive partnership, over the last six weeks Nir Bitton has been the only back-up central defender fit and available.
Neil Lennon has three options in each full-back positions, from the reports in Brazil it appears that bringing in a new central defender will be a priority once the January transfer window opens.
