Corinthians is close to signing a contract with midfielder Igor Coronado from Saudi Arabia, previously playing for Al-Ittihad. The player will come to Brazil on Friday to undergo medical examinations and sign a contract with the club from São Paulo. At 31 years old, he has never played professionally in Brazil and wants to fulfill his dream of playing in his home country.

Over the last two days, the club's authorities established the final details of the negotiations. Coronado is likely to sign a contract until the end of 2025, with the option to extend for another year depending on the achievement of goals.

In this way, Corinthians is trying to ensure the conditions for organizing the documentation and registering Igor Coronado by Friday (16), the final date for qualifying players for the first phase of the Campeonato Paulista.

Igor Coronado will be the ninth reinforcement for Corinthians this season. So far, the club has already signed defenders Félix Torres and Gustavo Henrique, full-backs Hugo and Diego Palacios, midfielder Raniele, midfielder Rodrigo Garro and striker Pedro Raul – all of whom have already been announced.
