A DEAL HE CAN'T REFUSE?
Vasco sweetens the pot for RBNY target Juninho
Red Bulls target Juninho Pernambucano has been made an offer by Vasco da Gama that might be difficult to refuse.
The Brazilian club has offered the 38-year-old midfielder a salary of $644,000 a month in a one-year deal, according to Futnet.com. Juninho also would receive $322,000 another as a director/ambassador over two years, the website reported on Tuesday.
Vasco has won the Rio and Brazilian championships and qualified for Copa Libertadores.
"Let's do everything to get that Juninho," Vasco CEO Rene Simoes told Arena Sportv." His case also involves planning for post-career. He came and talk to resolve this situation. [We] believe that everything will be alright."
Juninho, whose specialty is converting dead-ball situations into goals, was a key performer for Vasco, even at his ancient age.
