CBF blocks the registration, and Clayton’s Atlético Mineiro debut should be postponed
Atlético Mineiro should be without new signing Clayton for the match against Tombense on Sunday in the sixth round of the Campeonato Mineiro.
Although he was presented to the press on Thursday, the player had the documentation blocked by the Brazilian Football Confederation [CBF]. Through its press office, the organization explained that the player doesn’t meet conditions to play. As mentioned in UOL Esporte, Atlético spent €3.5 million to acquire 50% of the economic rights of Clayton. However, in the documentation that was sent to CBF, there was no clarity over who owns the remaining half. The problem occurred mainly because the economic rights of Clayton were divided into six agents. Before the sale to Atlético, Figueirense held 10% of the rights of the youngster, a portion similar to Banco BMG. Jorge Machado, responsible for managing Clayton’s career, had 15%, a percentage similar to the father. The Alliance, company of Figueirense president Wilfredo Brillinger, owned 30% and the businessman Eduardo Uram kept 20%.
Clayton appeared among the starters during Friday’s training session, but if the player doesn’t meet the conditions to work, Diego Aguirre must choose between Jesús Dátolo, Hyuri and Cazares for the game this weekend.
