Rio de Janeiro gi­ant Fla­mengo is re­port­edly in talks with Chi­nese Su­per League side Shang­hai SIPG to ac­quire Ar­gen­tine mid­fielder Dario Conca on a loan. The 33-yearold has not played since sus­taing a knee in­jury in SIPG’s 4 -1 win over Shi­ji­azhuang Ever Bright in Au­gust. He is not ex­pected to re­turn to ac­tion un­til March.

Ac­cord­ing to Brazil­ian news­pa­per Uol Es­porte, Conca is keen to re­turn to Rio, where he rep­re­sented Fla­mengo’s ri­vals Flu­mi­nense in two sep­a­rate spells.

Un­der terms of the pro­posed one-year loan, Fla­mengo would only need to pay Conca’s salary, ex­pected to be less than half that of his cur­rent deal, re­port­edly worth around $11 mil­lion a year.
