Fluminense hit by fans backlash over Marcelo Pitaluga Liverpool sale

Fluminense fans are furious over the sale of Marcelo Pitaluga to Liverpool.

The Mirror reports Pitaluga has left Fluminense to complete his Liverpool transfer - and sparked a furious response from fans back in Brazil.

The Brazilian club have confirmed a fee has been agreed with the Reds for the 17-year-old goalkeeper as he flies to pen personal terms and complete his medical.

The deal will cost them up to £2million but is set to initially cost only £1million - and Fluminense fans are enraged by the loss of one of their top talents.

A group of supporters took to their club HQ to protest against recent sales, prompted to act by news of Pitaluga's departure.

Pitaluga is set to sign a three-year deal with Liverpool having a 25% sell-on clause if he moves on elsewhere in the future.
