The Brazilian football club Sao Paulo is concerned about the situation with Robert Arboleda, the central defender who before the start of the season became one of the best mentors and team captain.
TV network GlobeSport, warned that Robert Arboleda did not accept the initial contract extension offer that Sao Paulo made to him through his agent Jose Chamorro. This will prevent the player from starting pre-season on Saturday.
“He won’t be in Sao Paulo this Saturday. We will wait for Rui Costa’s contact. The offer presented was very low,” the businessman said in a conversation with the said media, answering a question about the gift and Tricolor Paulista’s intentions to renew it.
Robert, 32, has a contract with Sao Paulo until the end of 2024, but the club is in a hurry to extend it because, starting in June, he will be able to sign a preliminary contract with any club that is interested in him. According to the above-mentioned media, during this winter window there have already been polls for the central defender, whose advantage is the national team.
During his professional career, Arboleda gained important experience, but in Sao Paulo he established himself as a star. The footballer defended the colors of Centro Deportivo Olmedo, Municipal Cañar, Grecia de Chone, Liga de Loja and Catholic University in Ecuador.
