How Santos FC are taking control of their transfer operations
by Jack Hyom

Brazilian giants join TransferRoom to gain instant access to reliable intelligence and to do direct business with more than 650 clubs worldwide.

Now, in a more globalised world, it is important to have quick access to trustworthy information. TransferRoom is a platform in which you can easily access information about everything that is happening on players, situations and their contracts. So it's very important.
Andres Rueda
President, Santos FC

Quick access to reliable information

 

As the biggest exporter of players in world football, there is no shortage of talent in Brazil.

 

But for those players who do not generate global headlines that clubs are keen to outplace, there are few efficient ways of communicating their availability.

 

It means clubs can either end up missing out on potential sales opportunities or have intermediaries in charge of negotiations.

 

Santos FC are now taking control of the transfer process, joining the TransferRoom community to ensure that the global market has first-hand, reliable information about their players’ availability.

 

“Now, in a more globalised world, it is important to have quick access to trustworthy information,” says Andres Rueda, Santos FC President, in the video below.

 

 

“TransferRoom is a platform in which you can easily access information about everything that is happening on players, situations and their contracts. So it's very important.

 

“All clubs today have their internal scouting and market departments and having this tool helps a lot in the decision to buy and sell players.”

 

Buy and sell at the right price

 

TransferRoom’s Expected Transfer Value mechanism provides the most credible, data-led measure of a player’s worth, a benchmark executives can use when negotiating deals.

 

Access to this real-time market intelligence means Santos FC can both pitch their players at the right level, and recruit at prices that suit them, saving time and money in the transfer process.

 

Rueda continues: “TransferRoom is a tool which facilitates the access of all the information regarding the transfer market. With two clicks you can see all the information regarding a player’s contract, his Expected Transfer Value and whether or not that player is within your transfer budget.”

 

The academy of two of the football’s greatest ever Brazilian players, Pele and Neymar Junior, and more recently Real Madrid star Rodrygo Goes, the star player for TransferRoom Trusted Agency Un1que Football, Santos’ youth development is recognised as among the very best worldwide.

 

Connections made with decision-makers at more than 650 clubs across over 60 countries will help showcase those talents to the world and open up the buying markets.

 

“Santos FC is one of the teams with the greatest potential and generation of new young players,” Rueda adds. “We have a talent factory and some of the most exciting young talents in the world. Of course it is very important to display our talent to a global audience on TransferRoom.

 

“The main goal of a football club is to win trophies and not to be a ‘selling factory’. Buying and selling players should always be with the intention of helping the club win tournaments.

 

“Having more tools at our disposal to reach a global market makes it better for everyone, for the players and for both buying and selling clubs.”
