Due to Pineda’s refusal to extend his link with the Machine, Álvaro Dávila’s plan ‘B’ is already underway and in the event of any offer presented by the player, the intention would be to get rid of the midfielder to receive some amount of money, especially due to the new economic restructuring of the club that tries to be self-sustaining.
