Grêmio's Cris set to seal transfer to Vasco
Grêmio defender Cris is set to seal his long awaited transfer to Brasileirão rivals Vasco da Gama in the coming days.
The Tricolor's sporting director Rui Costa confirmed that the defender will be heading to Vasco shortly.
In a press conference after Grêmio's 1-0 defeat to Coritiba, Rui Costa confirm to reporters that Cris is close to leaving the club.
36-year-old Cris will be rejoining former Lyon teammate Juninho Pernambucano at the club, after six months at Grêmio.
Rui Costa claims that the two clubs are finalising the remaining fine details of the transfer and that it should be confirmed within a day or two.
This brings an end to a week of negotiations between the two clubs over the transfer of the former Lyon and Galatasaray star.
