Now his agent has revealed that they are looking to cancel his contract in Spain early with a move to Brazil a possibility for the 33-year-old.

Marcos Leite told AS, “We’ve talked to two clubs, one in Rio de Janeiro and another in the North East.

“Not anyone can hire a player like this. What we’re discussing is his salary.

“We’ll try to solve [van der Vaart’s Betis contract] so the player can go on a free, without having to pay the termination clause.

“Palmeiras made an inquiry but not a proposal. A person who wasn’t authorised spoke on behalf of Santos, but there’s nothing in that regard.”
