Flamengo have officially signed Roma midfielder Gerson for €11.8m plus 10 per cent of a future transfer fee after his loan spell with Fiorentina.
The Brazilian was determined to go back home and chose Flamengo ahead of all others, turning down moves to Genoa and Dinamo Moscow.
A statement from Roma this evening confirmed Gerson was sold to Flamengo for €11.8m plus 10 per cent of any future transfer fee.
The 22-year-old has signed a contract with his new club until December 2023.
He had been a very expensive investment from Fluminense in January 2016, costing €15m, but failed to live up to expectations.
