Former Brazil fullback Roberto Carlos ended his contract with Corinthians by mutual agreement on Saturday and looked set to move to a Russian club.
The 37-year-old former Real Madrid defender was targeted by fans during violent protests against the team following their shock early exit from the Libertadores Cup last week.
“We gave him all our assurances (for his safety) here at Corinthians. He has his own motives,” Andres Sanches, president of the Brazilian club, said.
“He’s a guy of 37 already, he received a good offer from abroad and by mutual accord we decided to free him,” Sanches told reporters.
Brazilian media said Roberto Carlos would be joining Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia in a 5.0 million euros ($6.78 million) one-year deal.

Roberto Carlos apparently still has plenty to offer, even at 37, and it seems a big money offer from Russia is too hard for him to turn down. Could a Premier League side come in with an offer for the former Real Madrid man?
