Pyramids could lose their brazilian star next January as both Flamengo and Cruzeiro are interested in bringing the midfielder back to his home country.

Brazilian publication ​Globoesporte claim that Flamengo will submit a bid valued around $4 million to sign the 30-year-old, espcially that are set to lose two of their star players.
