CLARENCE SEEDORF is expected to land at Botafogo according to reports in Brazil and Italy.
Seedorf’s experience at Milan is expected to come to an end as reports are suggesting today that he has agreed a move to Brazilian side Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas and the announcement is imminent.
Brazilian website Lancenet claims Seedorf is 99 per cent sure of moving to Botafogo. The Dutchman’s contract with the Rossoneri expires on June 30 and he hasn’t told Milan what he’s going to do: stay or go.
In Brazil they are sure the 36-year-old, whose wife is Brazilian, is coming to Botafogo and Sky Sport Italia also claims the move is nearly done. Seedorf spent 10 years at Milan – from 2002 to 2012. Clarence won the Champions League twice with il Diavolo in 2003 and 2007 and he was a key player in Ancelotti’s side.
Veterans Alessandro Nesta, Gennaro Gattuso, Gianluca Zambrotta, Mark Van Bommel and Filippo Inzaghi confirmed their exits last month already so it would be no surprise if Clarence indeed leaves Milan.
Is Seedorf joins Botafogo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to get his number 10 shirt.
