A key player in the 2016 Brazilian Championship title, the experienced 39-year-old archer is seen as the third goalkeeper at the moment and must sign the extension contract for another year in the coming days.
Jailson arrived at Palmeiras still in the final stretch of 2014 and was one of the most important names in the squad in 2016 when he replaced the then injured Fernando Prass. At the time, Jailson was a ‘wall’ and helped the team to break a 21-year-old taboo without Brazilian titles.
The goalkeeper’s current contract runs until the end of 2021 and must be signed by the end of 2022. In addition to Jailson, Palmeiras works internally with the contract renewals of Willian and Felipe Melo.
The experienced names of the cast are targets of other teams. As a result, Palmeiras sees the permanence of the two names as ‘important’. Striker Willian is the target of Fluminense, but the salary is still an obstacle to the adjustment with the Tricolor das Laranjeiras.
In the case of Felipe Melo, the length of the contract should be the subject of debate, as the midfielder seeks a two-year agreement with the São Paulo club. The multi-champion for the club is 37 years old and turns 38 in June this year.
