No Fluminense deal in place for Dario Conca
Former Fluminense forward Dario Conca will return to China in January to continue his career with Guangzhou Evergrande after failing to engineer a move back to Brazil.
Conca, 29, is an idol at Fluminense after helping the Rio giants to the final of the 2008 Copa Libertadores and win the 2010 league title before moving to China to become one of the highest paid players in the world.
However, the Argentine is unhappy in the Far East and would love to return to South America, and Fluminense in particular, as soon as possible.
Such a move in complicated by the player’s salary and the demands made by Guangzhou and the player’s lawyer, Marcos Motta, confirmed on Twitter that the two clubs had failed to reach an agreement.
He said: “Various clubs in Brazil made queries about Conca, but the only one who spoke openly about the negotiation was Fluminense. As there was no improvement, the matter is closed.
“Conca as usual will go back to China. What will happen a year from now, six months from now, I do not know. Any club interested in Conca has to seek the Chinese.”
