Grêmio allow on-loan Moreno to play for Flamengo
Flamengo and Grêmio have come to an agreement to allow on-loan Bolivian striker Marcelo Moreno to play in the clash between the two clubs on Saturday.
Moreno is now free to play for Flamengo against Gremio in the Brasileirão after both clubs agreed to break a contractual clause preventing the Bolivian striker's involvement.
The 26-year-old had been barred from the match under terms of his season-long loan deal from Gremio, who still own his economic rights, Globoesporte reported.
But he is now free to play after Flamengo offered to pay the Porto Alegre club $120,000 to release him from the clause.
"It would be disrespectful to him if we didn't give him the chance to play," Flamengo coach Mano Menezes said.
"We are showing him how important he is to our group, just like all of the other players are."
