News coming from Turkey suggests that Corinthians man, Dentinho, could be on his way to Istanbul.
Rumour has it that Fenerbahçe representatives are in Brazil to negotiate a possible move for the player to Europe.
Dentinho, whose real name is Bruno Ferreira Bonfim, turns 21 in two days. The 1.75m player has been in the Parque São Jorge first team since 2007. But with forwards Ronaldo, Iarley, Souza and attacking midfielder Defederico, on the books at the Musketeers, Dentinho’s first team chances may be limited this season and this might be the right time for a move abroad.
Last year, the Turkish club signed Christian and André Santos from Corinthians. After a promising start, Santos’ form has nose-dived and some gutless performances have irritated the Turkish club and their passionate fans.
If the rumours of a possible move do turn out to be true, Dentinho will need to be 100% certain he wants to make the switch and will have to be fully committed to Fenerbahçe and their demanding fans.
Dentinho should be in Corinthians’ squad for their opener in the Campeonato Paulista this afternoon. The game vs Monte Azul kicks off at 17:00 local time and you can see it with us on Brazilian football.
