Ex Liverpool man, Fábio Aurélio, linked with Palmeiras
Palmeiras are in the hunt for a new leftback and have expressed an interest in signing Fábio Aurélio. The Brazilian has just left Liverpool after turning down a pay-as-you-play contract. Aurélio’s ability has never been in doubt and he was a recent call up to the Brazil squad. However, since his arrival at Anfield, the Brazilian has suffered a string of injuries and Liverpool were not keen on giving the 30-year-old the type of contract he wanted.
Palmeiras’ current leftback, Pablo Armero, could be on his way to Parma and the Palestra Itália club are keen to have a replacement ready. “It’s an area that we need to reinforce. We’re still waiting to sort out Armero’s exit but Fábio Aurélio is a name in which we’re interested” said vice president of football, Gilberto Cipullo.
