Unimed chairman: Conca must resolve his issues before a deal is considered


Unimed chairman Celso Barros has avoided committing to helping partners Fluminense re-sign Dario Conca from Guangzhou Evergrande, insisting the player must solve his issues with the Chinese side first.

Conca, 29, has won back-to-back titles in his time in Guangdong, but has grown disillusioned with life in southern China. He is reported to have walked out on the club at the end of the Chinese season last week.

"The budget is already committed for next season with the maintenance of this current squad," Celso Barros told Radio Globo. "Obviously, in a situation that would be wonderful, we could look.

"Conca is great, but he has a situation with his club. If we resolve this, we can see if we can do something about hiring him."

The Argentine has a contract with the Chinese side until December 2013, but has made clear his desire to return to Brazil and has this week been on the receiving end of stinging criticism from Evergrande chairman Liu Yongzhuo regarding his conduct.

The Chinese club had come close to securing Botafogo attacking midfielder Elkeson as a potential replacement, but news outlets in Brazil report that that deal has fallen through after one of the player's investors rejected the terms offered.
