Diogo Barbosa was hired by Fluminense to fill a gap in the tricolor squad, due to Jorge’s knee injury and Marcelo’s calf pain. He arrives at the Carioca club after passing through Grêmio, where he has played since the beginning of 2020, coming from Palmeiras. During his time in Porto Alegre, the left-back played 106 games, scoring two goals and providing nine assists. This signing represents the return of Diogo Barbosa to football in Rio, after having defended Botafogo in 2016.

Regarding the player’s contract, until December the teams will share his salary equally. However, the agreement provides that in 2024 he will definitely remain at Fluminense, as his contract with Grêmio will be terminated. However, to achieve this permanence, it will be necessary to renegotiate their salaries and reduce their remuneration.

Earlier this year, Fluminense were looking for a left-back in the market and considered both Diogo Barbosa and Felipe Jonatan, from Santos, at the request of coach Fernando Diniz. However, the club opted to hire Jorge, who offered more favorable conditions, coming on a free loan from Palmeiras and with a split salary.
