Cruzeiro make last minute offer for De Arrascaeta and competes with Internacional
Brazilian champions are looking to replace Ricardo Goulart by bringing De Arrascaeta from Defensor.
De Arrascaeta's transfer to Internacional was taken for granted and Defensor confirmed a deal with Inter last week. Only the exchange of some documents were stopping the deal from being officially announced. Internacional found an investment group to fund the transfer but it seems FIFA's new rule regarding third-party has stopped the deal from happening for now. According to various media outlets in Brazil, Cruzeiro have offered €4 million in cash for 50% economic-rights of De Arrascaeta while Inter plan to pay the amount as installments. Cruzeiro's offer has been confirmed by Fernando Otto, who represented the player during conversations with Inter and now awaits the answer of his agent Daniel Fonseca.
