Atletico-MG have been hoping to count midfielder Pedrinho, the former Corinthians footballer, on July 18. But the debt situation, though advanced, is mired in uncertainty over player rights owner Shakhtar Donetsk. Galo already has a contract with the player, but the scenario is complicated and has created animosity between both the Ukrainian team leaders and the player’s agents.
Pedrinho has not been on the field since December 2021, at the age of 24, due to a football stalemate in Ukraine following the country’s war with Russia. Due to the controversy, FIFA last Tuesday announced an extension to June 2023 in favor of suspending the contracts of foreign players.
The thing is, behind the scenes, rumors are circulating that the company may release players (and at no cost). For this reason, Shakhtar fears that Pedrinho will be given a one-year loan to Gallo and, despite the inclusion of a purchase option clause in the agreement – which Atletico has already accepted – The entire کی 18 million investment to remove the player has been lost.

No one can imagine what is happening … Managers come to clubs and say: ‘Don’t pay Shakhtar, pay me 10 million (euros) and forget the club’. Apparently, some businessmen are thinking that contracts will be canceled because of the war and players can be traded at zero cost – he complained.
