Reliable and up-to-date market intelligence
Finding accurate and up-to-date information on what clubs need and which players are available can be very difficult in the modern transfer market.
There are more transfer rumours and third parties trying to get involved in deals than ever, and it’s especially hard for decision makers at high-profile clubs to cut through the noise and identify correct data and genuine transfer opportunities.
That is why Brazilian giants Vasco da Gama have turned to TransferRoom, gaining direct access to the recruitment teams at more than 700 clubs in over 100 leagues worldwide.
They can also see which players are available and match with possible transfer targets and buying clubs who meet their squad requirements and budget.
Speaking in the video below, Vasco Sporting Director Paulo Bracks said: “Building a squad is not simple and it demands strategy and management. One of the biggest challenges in the transfer market is to get information quickly and reliably, without any kind of uncertainty.
“In addition, because football is a global business, it's challenging to connect with clubs from different cultures, countries and time zones, with different habits and fixture schedules.
“Knowing all these mere facts and the environment can help in a transfer window. All this is facilitated by using TransferRoom.”
Being on global football’s marketplace also gives Vasco, renowned as one of the top clubs for developing young talent worldwide, to showcase their players on a greater scale and drive greater interest for more players in their squad, as fellow Brazilian side Sport Club Internacional did with the multi-million sales of Pedro Henrique and Nonato to Ludogorets in Bulgaria.
Vasco was the academy of Brazil legend Romario, and current internationals Philippe Coutinho and Douglas Luiz.
The club also developed Evander, who joined Major League Soccer’s Portland Timbers for a club-record fee via TransferRoom, and sold Andrey Santos to Chelsea in 2023.
Bracks adds: “TransferRoom is a global platform for the transfer market, helping and connecting Sporting Directors, promoting the interaction between scouts and in general connecting clubs around the world and bringing them closer to each other.
“We have an ambitious project, medium and long term, so Vasco could not stay out of the reality of the football business.”
The club is part of the selection of teams owned by 777 Partners, including Genoa FC in Italy and Belgium's Standard Liege, both of whom are also on TransferRoom.
