The contractual situation of the Ecuadorian, whose association with Los Angeles FC concluded in December, presents a unique opportunity for Corinthians. If the deal materializes, the Brazilian club could secure the services of a talented full-back without incurring transfer costs in 2024.

The potential arrival of Diego Palacios at Parque São Jorge would not only strengthen Corinthians' defense but also add valuable offensive dynamics to the team. The emphasis on players with distinctive characteristics, such as Palacios' ability to support the attack, appears to align with Corinthians' strategic vision for the upcoming season.
