River is closing a fantastic transfer market, in which it incorporated players with a lot of hierarchy and where it was strengthened with the aim of being able to win the Copa Libertadores. The great pending debt was to sign a striker and the leadership continues to work to fulfill Marcelo Gallardo’s wish.
Valentín Castellanos was the great obsession of the DT and it could have been the bombing of the market. The figure of the MLS had the desire to play in the Millionaire and in Núñez they were willing to make an effort for him, but New York City decided not to sell it.
River offered US$11,500,000 to be paid in installments and there were differences with the desire of the United States team. The player made many efforts to come to Argentine soccer and had even arranged his personal contract for a lower amount than what he charged in his current team, but it was not possible to agree between the clubs.
Gallardo knows that he needs a forward and that is why they will look for a variant that they can close in the next few hours. It is not easy and it is clear that it seems impossible to get a player of the quality of Castellanos. Nowadays Risee Julián Álvarez (who could leave in June), Braian Romero and Flabian Londoño (not debuted yet).
What are the options that are handled? In the last few hours they were offered Maxi Romero, a forward from Vélez who is currently at PSV in the Netherlands. His arrival does not seem easy and the words of the Doll show that it may be that no one arrives. “We are not going to go out in a hurry to do crazy things. If there is no other player to change the equation for us, we will be fine until the middle of the year,” declared the coach after the win against Patronato.
