Sao Paulo:

World club champion Sao Paulo said on Friday it has reached an agreement to acquire Brazil striker Ricardo Oliveira on loan from Spain's Real Betis. However, Oliveira denied that a deal had been closed. Sao Paulo director Edgar Galvao announced that the club signed Oliveira from Betis until the end of the Copa Libertadores on August 10. However, the player said he was surprised with the news. "We haven't reached an agreement yet," Oliveira told the Agencia Estado news service. "I have offers from Sao Paulo and Santos, but I need to talk to Betis directors to see what they think." Oliveira had been constantly summoned for Brazil's national team until he suffered a serious knee injury and underwent surgery last November. The striker has been in Brazil since then, being treated by some of Sao Paulo's doctors. (AP)
