RIO DE JANEIRO, April 29 (Xinhua) -- Former Argentina international midfielder Ariel Cabral said Wednesday that he intends to see out his contract with Brazil's Cruzeiro, despite offers from his homeland.
The 32-year-old has eight months remaining on his deal with the four-time Brazilian Serie A champions, whom he joined from Velez Sarsfield in 2015.
"There are other clubs in Argentina that have made inquiries," Cabral told Radio 98FM in Belo Horizonte.
"But I'm only thinking about helping Cruzeiro to rebuild. They have helped me a lot in the last few years and I'm not going to abandon them now."
Capped twice for Argentina's national team, Cabral has made 94 league appearances for Cruzeiro and helped the club win back-to-back Brazilian Cups in 2017 and 2018.
Cruzeiro were relegated to Brazil's Serie B last year for the first time in their history.
