Corinthians turn down Atlético Madrid and Monaco bids for Pedrinho

At just 21 years old, Corinthians winger Pedrinho has many of Europe’s biggest clubs looking to sign him in this summer’s transfer window.

According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Monaco and Atletico Madrid have each had recent bids rejected for the Brazil U-23 international.

Both clubs reportedly offered €20m for the player – half of the €40m that Corinthians currently seek for the young talent.

Pedrinho already boasts a wealth of experience, having made 105 appearances for Timão since making his professional debut in 2017, scoring eight goals.

The Maceió native, however, has caught fire lately, tallying five goals in 12 combined Brasileirão and Copa Sudamericana appearances this season.

In this past weekend’s 3-1 victory over Fortaleza, Pedrinho ran the show as he scored a goal and added an assist in a match where Borussia Dortmund scouts were reportedly on hand to monitor the player.
