Manager Antonio Oliveira asserts that Carlos Miguel remains at Corinthians until instructed otherwise, despite Nottingham Forest’s interest in him. The Reds are considering him for their goalkeeping roster restructure this summer. Recent reports from Brazil suggest he’s poised to sign a five-year contract with Forest, with the club likely to activate his €4 million (£3.4m) release clause.

Corinthians president Augusto Melo stated in a press conference on Monday that Carlos Miguel’s release clause hadn’t been activated yet. However, he mentioned that contingency plans were being developed to address the potential departure of the player. Manager Oliveira emphasized that it’s business as usual for the keeper until any official changes occur, as evidenced by his inclusion in Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw with Atletico Goianiense.

“I’m focused on Corinthians, and Carlos Miguel is currently part of our squad. Until I receive any updates suggesting otherwise, he remains available for selection, just like any other player,” Oliveira explained to Brazilian news outlet Terra. “I pick the best players I believe will contribute to our club’s success.”

According to Terra, during the warm-up, Miguel faced displeasure from Corinthians fans who expressed dissatisfaction with his anticipated departure. They reportedly voiced support for backup keeper Matheus Donelli instead.

Reports suggest that Nottingham Forest successfully fended off competition from West Ham United for Miguel’s signature. Additionally, he has attracted interest from European clubs and Watford, while Corinthians are allegedly making efforts to convince him to stay at the club.

Earlier reports from Brazil indicated that the 25-year-old wouldn’t depart until July. Should he indeed join Nottingham Forest, it would signify the beginning of the Reds reevaluating their goalkeeper options.

Odysseas Vlachodimos is expected to depart, and there are uncertainties surrounding Matt Turner’s future. Neither player fully impressed after joining the club last summer. Consequently, Forest delved into the transfer market again in January to recruit Matz Sels as their new No.1.
