Fluminense ace Evanilson rejects first City Group bid

Fluminense forward Evanilson has rejected an initial offer from the City Football Group, the company that manages Manchester City.

20-year-old Evanilson could move to Europe this summer with Fluminense powerless to stop him.

Evanilson is on loan at Fluminense from lower league club Tombense and they do not have the power to stop him moving.

He originally belonged to Fluminense but in a case of strange ownership rights that are common in South America, he joined third tier club Tombense.

Immediately after joining Tombense, he was loaned back to Fluminense until the end of 2021.

CFG must make a better offer

A move to Europe could be next, but according to Globo Esporte an initial offer from the City Football Group was not to the player’s liking.

Their plan was to place Evanilson in France’s Ligue 2 with Troyes, a club that recently partnered with the CFG.

His camp refused that offer and the CFG must present a better plan if they want the promising attacker.

Evanilson was promoted to Fluminense’s first team in the second half of 2019 and quickly become a leading player.

The striker is now Fluminense’s second top scorer with nine goals in 20 appearances.

A clause in Fluminense’s loan agreement with Tombense means he can only leave for a foreign club.

Benfica held talks with the youngster’s agent in February, but negotiations did not progress.
