Wouldn't there be work permit issues too?
As far as I'm aware he's been a good player for Shakhtar. He's never been capped by the senior Brazil team whereas most of their Olympic squad has, so I wouldn't read too much into him not being picked. Brazil are well stocked when it comes to talented attacking midfielders & wide-forwards, so I'm not surprised he's been left out.Just noticed that he isn't in the Brazil Olympic squad. Has he been disappointing since his move? Or are their different reasons for him not being picked?
It was until they were asking for around 30 million and he went to Shaktar for like 10 million or round about wasn't itCame on for Shaktar last night and scored a really good goal.
I remember us being heavily linked with him back 3 or 4 years ago and thought it was an all but done deal.
