The information was initially released by presenter Benjamin Back and confirmed by the report by My Timon. The player must sign a contract by Monday to defend the club until the end of 2021.
The player has been at Atlético-MG since 2016, the club for which he was hired just a year after Corinthians left. Holder since then, he lost space this season with the arrival of another acquaintance of the Corinthians: Guilherme Arana, today indispensable in the mining team. He was coached by Vagner Mancini last year.
The athlete is seen as a market opportunity for having a contract only until December with the Belo Horizonte team and not being used in the Brazilian. The defender played five games in this Brazilian, only one as a starter – in the duel in question, he was substituted in the interval.

In his first spell at Timão, between 2011 and 2015, Fábio Santos won the Brazilian 2011, Libertadores and the 2012 World Cup, Recopa and Paulista 2013. He also participated in some games at the beginning of the 2015 Brazilian, also won by the club of Parque São Jorge.
