However, the biggest highlight of the team is our teammate, Breno Bidon. Scorer of a beautiful goal in the quarter-finals, against América-MG, the 18-year-old jewel has attracted attention since 2022, when he even trained among the professionals and won praise from then coach Vítor Pereira. Since he was under-17, he has already attracted interest, including from European football.
Bidon’s contractual situation is very similar, and Corinthians should value these names, especially after the good Copinha. They may take place in light of the renewal promoted under the new presidential administration, which released names such as the experienced Renato Augusto and Giuliano.
