Midfielder Fausto Vera enjoys little prestige on the technical committee, headed by Mano Menezes. The player can be used as a bargaining chip and thus say goodbye to Corinthians in the next transfer window, i.e. in January.

Report from Sports Gazette it turned out that Fausto is not completely excluded from the plans, but he is not a priority in assembling the squad for 2024. Therefore, Timão's management may exchange the player for another player who will interest Mano.

Agent Fausto contacted Corinthians management about a week ago and is aware of the player's current status at Timão.

Despite a disappointing 2023 season, Fausto has a market in Brazil and abroad. Therefore, negotiations involving the 23-year-old midfielder are not perceived as difficult by the parties.

Despite scoring against Coritiba in the final round of the Brazilian Championship, Fausto appears to have dropped significantly this season after an exciting 2022. The player leaves this season with 47 matches played (34 starts), one goal and three assists, as well as nine yellow cards.

Fausto arrived at Corinthians in July 2022 from Argentinos Juniors. Timão agreed to pay approximately $8 million (then A$43 million) for 70% of the young man's economic rights.
