Brazil move for van der Vaart?

Rafael van der Vaart’s agent has confirmed interest from Brazil in the Real Betis midfielder.

AS reports Marcos Leite, who is Brazilian, is in South America to talk to potential suitors and he is quoted as saying there are two clubs with whom he is talking.

“We’ve talked to two clubs, one in Rio de Janeiro and another in the North East,” Leite confirmed.

“Not anyone can hire a player like this. What we’re discussing is his salary.

“We’ll try to solve [van der Vaart’s Betis contract] so the player can go on a free, without having to pay the termination clause.

“Palmeiras made an inquiry but not a proposal. A person who wasn’t authorised spoke on behalf of Santos, but there’s nothing in that regard.”
