A major men’s volleyball transfer rumor is coming from Brazil!

 

According to the well-informed journalist Bruno Voloch, The Brazilian Superliga defending champions Sada Cruzeiro have received a tempting offer for their middle blocker Robertlandy Simón from Italy.

Allegedly, the current SuperLega runners-up Cucine Lube Civitanova offered 100,000 U.S. dollars for the Cuban superstar but Cruzeiro have refused it as they ask 400,000 dollars for his „freedom“.

The thing is that Simón has a valid contract with Cruzeiro until the end of the next season but he expressed a desire to return to play in Italy after four years.

That is a a ridiculous sum to pay for a buyout transfer fee. No way Lube plays $400,000 or anything close to that for a 32 year old who has a ton of wear and tear on his body from international ball since he was 17.

Cruzeiro looking to squeeze $$$$$ out of this situation

Re: @suisse
Lol first to all Simon birthday was 5 days ago and he is 31, second have u seen his body???? he is one of the most physical phenom outthere almost like Lebron in Basketball, with 30 he schooled Lisinac which for most part of the people is the best MB right, now. Im agree that Cruzeiro is asking to much but the thing is they dont wanna let him go cause their entire project would fall then for the next season at least in their league, with the current roster even with Simon on it, win the world championship club is out of the question with Zenit and Perugia. Simon did a bad thing signing for 3 years Cruzeiro will not down his fee, even if is only for one more year, he will go to Civitanova next year for free.

Of COURSE he is a great player but is he worth a big salary AND a $400,000 transfer fee? No Way. The Brazilian economic situation and the reports recently of the lack of govt. funding for sports in general make believe that Cruzeiro is NOT going to back down from their demand.
Im not sure I would sign him for longer than a 2 year contract if he gets released.

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
