Santos to target Carlos Eduardo as plan B if Nenê deal falls through

Santos will look to Rubin Kazan forward Carlos Eduardo if the deal to bring Paris Saint-Germain winger Nenê falls through.

Nenê, 31, has been told he is free to leave the Parc des Princes this January as he has just six months left on his contract and has fallen out of favour with coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Santos are looking to sign a forward who can play on the right hand side of the attack and, while they have players already who could play this role, coach Muricy Ramalho has set his sights on a big name.

Robinho was their first choice but that deal has fallen through and Diego Souza and Renato Augusto were also considered but they chose to sign for Cruzeiro and Corinthians respectively.

“Our priority is Nenê,” Santos sports director Felipe Faro told Lancenet!

“If he does not arrive, we will try others. Carlos Eduardo was a name that appeared, but we have nothing. Hiring him is not easy, since the Russian club paid around €20 million for him.

Santos are close to having their squad ready for the new season, having already signed six players with Cicero, Guilherme Santos, Montillo, Neto, Pinga and Rene Jr all joining the club.

However, they are still on the lookout for any possible deals that can improve the squad.

“In planning we wanted a winger, a second defensive midfielder, a playmaker, a striker and an attacking midfielder. We opened negotiations with several possibilities, let's see what we can close,” added Santos president Odílio Rodrigues.
