According to the Brazilian’s father, there is an “80 percent chance he will play for Flamengo” after rejecting the Russian club.

22-year-old Brazilian midfielder Gerson might go back to his native country.

At least this is what his dad says.

He started his professional career in 2014 with Fluminense but was bought by Roma in 2016.

He spent the last season playing for Fiorentina.

And his future was not set, which is why he is rumored to be joining Flamengo in this summer.

“This is the situation. It’s not just Flamengo who are interested in the player, but other clubs too, despite the fact he is still under contract with Roma,” Gerson’s father Marco Antonio was quoted by Football Italia.

“We just want what is best for the lad and are not thinking about this in financial terms.”

Marco Antonio explained: “We had a meeting and a nice chat with Flamengo, a team where every player would love to go and it’d be a great way of getting back into the Brazil squad.”

“As things stand today, there is an 80 percent chance he will play for Flamengo, even if some think it’s unwise to go back to Brazil.”

“I believe he’d have more chance of playing for the Selecao there,” he concluded.
