With a contract with Shakhtar Donetsk, from Ukraine, until the month of November, the 32-year-old striker still has an indefinite future. He has three goals in 14 games in the 2020/2021 season.
Striker agent, former midfielder Gilberto Silva prefers not to enter into speculation about a possible return in 2021.
– Everything that involves Corinthians in relation to Dentinho, we are very careful, due to the history he has in the club – said the businessman.
A Shakhtar player since July 2011, when he was traded by Corinthians himself, Dentinho has a great relationship with the Alvinegra board and a historical connection with the club. He himself does not hide the desire to return one day. The situation in Ukraine, however, is still undefined.
– We should have a meeting soon with Shakhtar, as Dentinho has been very important this season. The (possibility of) renewal will be on the agenda as well. Anyway, I am attentive to the market – said the former player of Atlético-MG and Arsenal, from England.
