In an interview to a radio station (Jovem Pan), Keirrison’s father, Mr. Adir, said that his son “is very happy in Palmeiras, and that he won’t leave the team in june“. He also said: “money is not important, the most important is that he gets better and now he wants to be in the Brazilian Team“.
But the fact is that wasn’t easy to Palmeiras to buy Keirrison. His contract with his former team, Coritiba, would end in April, and rumors said that he would go direct to Europe; Athletic Madrid, Valência and Barcelona were especulated.
Palmeiras paid R$2MI (almost US$1M) just to be able to have him now. And, even this way, some say that he has already planned his transfer to Athletic Madrid in june.
Keirrison is not a player of Palmeiras; his rights belong to a company called Traffic – the same group of investors that bought Henrique and sold him six months later to Barcelona. They can sell the player whenever they want, and if they have some pre-agreement with Athletic Madrid, there’s nothing Palmeiras can do.
In the end, the player’s choice will be the future, so I hope his father knows what he is talking.
