After offering €6 million and economic-rights of two players, São Paulo reach agreement to sign Maicon from Porto
Maicon, who arrived on loan during the third week of February, had an agreement with São Paulo until Thursday and was supposed to play his farewell game on Wednesday against Fluminense.
The board of São Paulo reached an agreement on Tuesday to sign defender Maicon from Portuguese side FC Porto. Porto accepted a proposal involving the payment of €6 million and the sale of 50% economic rights of defender Lucão and left-back Inácio. According to members of the board of São Paulo, the completion of the deal only lacks signatures of the parties involved. São Paulo had made a new proposal to Porto after seeing the initial €5 million bid get refused. The Brazilian club's executive director Gustavo Vieira de Oliveira, who was in Portugal, personally negotiated with the board of Porto. Before forwarding the agreement involving the transfer of players, Porto had requested €8 million to release the defender.
