Leonid Slutsky: Vagner Love can leave CSKA Moscow

The 40-year-old has revealed that the club are ready to release the player, but did not rule out the possibility of him staying with the Army Men if transfer negotiations fail
CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky has conceded that striker Vagner Love will not be kept against his will at the Russian outfit.

The 40-year-old, however, revealed that the Brazilian might stay with the club if talks with interested parties do not lead to satisfactory results.

Flamengo and Gremio are reportedly leading the race for the 27-year-old, who confessed earlier this year that he is desperate to return to his homeland.

"I'm ready to lose him. Vagner can leave CSKA," the coach told Globoesporte.

"But we also work on the hypothesis of him staying and helping the team. We hope to conclude transfer negotiations soon."
