Corinthians revealed that left-back Carlos Augusto has been defending the Italian Monza since 2020, after the club spent 4 million euros to obtain the economic rights of the athlete. With 60% of the rights to win the player’s future negotiations, Timão is surprised by what next step he can take to spawn Parque São Jorge.

This is because coach Roberto Mancini, of the Italian national team, has been keeping an eye on Carlos Augusto since his arrival on Italian soil and plans the defender to play for Squadra Azzurra soon. The commander himself had informed Monza of the interest. The information was disclosed by the portal Throw!.

The coach expects to persuade Carlos Augusto to carry out the Italian naturalization process. However, the dream of defending the Brazilian national team could influence the final decision of the team. “I have Italian citizenship and this helps me because there is a limit for foreigners in the club. My first choice will always be Brazil and I want to wear this shirt. I don’t think about it yet [jogar pela Itália]. I played a South American U-20 player and I know how good he is. I hope one day, with a lot of work, I can wear the main team jerseyIt’s not until 2020, Carlos told ESPN.

On social media, the white-and-white crowd seemed happy with the Italian left-back’s ‘ethic’ because if he does well, his market value could increase, which would be beneficial for Corinthians. “If Carlos Augusto is called up by Italy, maybe his value will rise and Corinthians will take extra grit in the sale‘, said one fan on his profile on Twitter.
