Flamengo quickly replace Pablo Mari
Pablo Mari's move to Arsenal was he perfect excuse for Flamengo to go after Pereira, a player they had been following for some months.
The deal has apparently been done for around six million euros. Leo Pereira will be a Flamengo player until December 2024.
He is just 23 and sees to be the perfect subtitute for Pablo Mari since he has lots of experience of playing for Athletico Paranaense in the Brazilian league.
Jorge Jesus has got the reinforcement he did after the Spanish defender's departure. For Leo Pereira, an exciting time of his career lies ahead.
