Rueda sees Luan signing as a “great market opportunity” for Santos

Santos agreed to hire Luan this Friday. The midfielder arrives on loan from Corinthians until the end of this year’s Campeonato Brasileiro, with an option to renew for another season. In the view of president Andres Rueda, the hiring was seen as a market opportunity.

“Luan was a great market opportunity, an experienced player, who was once King of America, Olympic champion and was approved by coach Lisca. We believe in his potential. Luan, welcome!”, said the representative.

Peixe will not pay anything to be able to count on the athlete. This proposal came from Timão himself, who found no interest in the professional in this transfer window. The team in the capital, therefore, will be responsible for paying the salaries, which are around R$ 700 thousand.

Luan does not currently have any physical problems, as revealed by the report in June this year. This season, the midfielder entered the field on just three opportunities: against Santo André, São Bernardo and Botafogo-SP, still in the Campeonato Paulista.

Corinthians acquired him for four seasons at a cost of R$ 28.9 million (50% of the rights) and had been finding it very difficult, due to the high salary of the athlete, to find a club that would accept the player, even on loan.

In addition to Luan, Santos also announced this afternoon the hiring of Nathan. The 20-year-old right-back, who was at Boavista, from Portugal, was permanently hired by Peixe and signed a contract valid until December 31, 2026.
