Florentino Perez sent a letter to the president of the Brazilian club to personally congratulate him on his success in the Libertadores. FIFA has yet to announce the date and venue of the Club World Cup. Real Madrid and Flamengo will compete (together with five other clubs) in the Club World Cup on a date yet to be determined, but the white club has not missed the opportunity to congratulate the great South American champion on his recent success in the Libertadores. The red and black team took the final against Atlético Paraenense played in Ecuador. A journalist linked to flamenco news has revealed the letter that Florentino Pérez has sent to his colleague in the presidency of the Brazilian club, Rodolfo Landim , in which he tells him in very glowing terms that it will be “an honor” to compete with Flamengo for the World Cup. “It will be a magnificent opportunity to continue strengthening our historic friendship relationship”, continues the white letter, signed at the bottom by the Madrid president. A deal with Flamengo that had its most recent fruition with the signing in 2018 (although agreed months before) of Vinicius by Real Madrid in exchange for 45 million euros.
An elegant and institutional white glove treatment that contrasts, without going any further, with the controversial message from ex-Barcelona player Arturo Vidal and now a player for the Brazilian team in the celebration of the flamengo title. Flamengo will be, together with Madrid, the great attraction of the 2023 Club World Cup, where Seattle Sounders, Auckland City, Wydad Casablanca and the next Asian champion will also participate, although the date and venue remain a mystery. FIFA has not yet communicated to the clubs or the public how and when the tournament will take place. The possibility of taking it to the United States (to Miami, specifically) is being explored, but the big obstacle is fitting it into a schedule that is very tight because of the World Cup in Qatar, especially for Ancelotti’s team.
