Coentrao asks for more time to consider PAOK transfer
On Friday, Fabio Coentrao was pictured arriving at Makedonia Airport, but the experienced left-back has asked for an extra 48 hours to make his final decision on whether to join PAOK.
Coentrao flew into Thessaloniki yesterday afternoon:
However, while Coentrao has agreed personal terms with PAOK and is in favour of joining the Dikefalos tou Vorra, he requested for an extra 48 hours to make his final decision on whether to move to Thessaloniki. Family matters are the reason why he asked for more time to consider the offer.
Coentrao departed Thessaloniki shortly after meeting with PAOK officials. The 31-year-old Portuguese left-back is available on a free transfer after he left Rio Ave this summer.
Coentrao was on the books of Real Madrid between 2011 and 2018, winning La Liga, the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de Espana. Coentrao was loaned to AS Monaco and Sporting Lisbon before joining Rio Ave on a permanent basis in August 2018.
He gained five assists in the 2018/2019 Liga NOS season for Rio Ave. Transfermarkt rates his value at 2.5 million euros.
