Rivaldo’s Brazilian return gathering pace

2 January 2006 01:52

ATHENS, Jan 2 (SW) - Brazilian international Rivaldo could be ready to cut short his stay with Olympiakos and return to his native Brazil.

The former Barcelona and AC Milan player signed a one-year deal for the Greek outfit in the summer, but could be ready to head home in the January transfer window. America RJ has been busy preparing a financial package to bring the star home.

"There is no speculation in what we are doing, it's something real. This is a negotiation that involves many people and I can say that the chance of having Rivaldo in our team is about 85 or 90 percent," said America RJ Vice President Valdir Zagaglia.

"The only thing that could make the negotiations fail is the payment that should be made to Olympiakos, but as the player has a contract with them until June 2006 that could maybe help make things easier.

"We are backed up by many sponsors and businessmen who will pay Rivaldo's arrival to America RJ. We have been in negotiations for a long time. Everything was top secret but now it is known.

"Rivaldo's contract will be paid with the money that some investors will bring to our club and with the company that will use the player's image for merchandising and marketing.

"Rivaldo is interested in playing again in Brazil in the first part of 2006 because he hopes to be recalled to the national team in order to play in the World Cup.

"He has told us that he accepts playing in the Carioca Championship but then he wants to be transferred to another team to play in the Brasileirao.”
