São Paulo discards Luís Fabiano, who interests Vasco and Ponte Preta
Without a club since last week after terminating his contract with Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian, striker Luís Fabiano visited the training centre of São Paulo on Sunday.
It was enough for speculations to arise about the return of the Chinese second division top-scorer to the Morumbi, but this will not occur, according to the information from Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola. It was president Leco who ran the club in December 2015, when Fabiano left without his contract being renewed. He earned R$600,000 per-month and had very bad value for money in the evaluation of Leco. Fabiano scored just eight goals in 22 matches during last year's Brasileirão. The list of players for the attack that interest São Paulo has Nilmar, who is terminating his contract with Al Nasr in the United Arab Emirates, and Willian Bigode of Cruzeiro. Luís Fabiano had a chance to stay one or two more seasons in China. However, he preferred to return to Brazil after making a decision with his family. The striker, who turns 36 this month, has been sounded out by two Brazilian clubs. Vasco da Gama, who are expected to be promoted to the Brasileirão, and Ponte Preta, which was the player's first club, have shown interest. This season, Fabiano scored 23 goals in 29 games for Tianjin Quanjian. For São Paulo, he has made 348 appearances, scoring 209 goals. Only Serginho Chulapa, with 242 goals, and Gino, with 233, have more than Fabiano in a São Paulo shirt.
