Emerson Sheik linked with move away from Corinthians
Corinthians striker Emerson Sheik is close to leaving the club according to reports on Brazilan news vessel Lancenet.
The 35 year-old, who has played international football for Qatar as well as Brazil at under-20 level, joined Corinthians in 2011 and has won the Copa Libertadores and Club World Cup in his time at the Sao Paulo club. However, he has grown impatient and has been linked with moves to Gremio and Atletico Mineiro among others after overcoming a thigh problem.
Wages are believed to be a stumbling block in any deal for Emerson, who is thought to be on anything up to R$ 500,000 per month at Corinthians.
