Rio de Janeiro, July 11 (IANS) Flamengo are in talks to sign Porto’s Colombia international midfielder Juan Quintero, according to media reports.
But the Rio de Janeiro club faces competition for the 22-year-old’s signature from their Brazilian rivals Atletico Mineiro, Xinhua quoted newspaper Globoesporte as saying on Friday.
