M and Metrosport.gr highlighted the transfer interest in acquiring the right-back and pointed out that there were four cases of players going to Razvan Lucescu for the final and most important examination. In the meantime, the necessary communications and preparations are being made, so that PAOK will be fully prepared when it reaches its decision on the final strike.
Rumors are daily, and yesterday there was a strong rumor about a player who had ‘played’ in the past with PAOK, while Tomba’s offices remained quiet. This is William Furtado who employed Decfalos under the Rebbe. Then came information from Germany that PAOK tried to get him on loan from Wolfsburg (he eventually went to Schalke) and apparently his name remained on the lists of Dykefalos scouts.
At 28 years old, his height is 1.76 m. A full-back, he began his career at Internazionale, where he moved in 2017 (and after winning a gold medal with Brazil in 2016) to Wolfsburg for a fee of five million euros.
In Germany (the common element with Baba), he faced many problems in his right knee and “wrote” a total of 83 matches with “Wolves” and nine with Schalke, while in 2022 he returned to his homeland as a free player. Cruzeiro gave him the chance to resume last season in January and William is having a fantastic season with 35 appearances, one goal and four assists.
It is worth noting that some time ago, Cruzeiro’s sporting director, Pedro Martins, in an interview conducted with him in Brazil, revealed the team’s intention to try to renew his contract, and made insulting statements about the 28-year-old player. “The club is happy with William. Apart from being a great athlete, he is a very important person in the dressing room because of the experience he has.” In Brazil, São Paulo are also said to want him, but if they themselves are looking to return to Europe, PAOK could be the perfect opportunity.
