Felipe signs new deal with Flamengo

Flamengo announced on Friday that year contract.

The former Corinthians man put together an impressive first campaign with Flamengo, starting 35 of the club's 38 games and helping the team to a fourth- place finish in the league.

Felipe's rights were reportedly owned by a group of investors as well as one of his former clubs, but Flamengo has acquired his full rights after paying a fee of $1.5 million.
