Mauro Zárate was released in December from América MG of Brazil, where he played the second half of 2021 (one goal and two assists in 16 PJ) and was decisive for the Minas Gerais team to qualify for the Copa Libertadores this year. The forward is still in Argentina, where He was tempted to return to local football by more than one club, but from the neighboring country they will try to retain him.
As explained in Brazil, America could not ensure the continuity of Zárate due to an economic issue, which it is trying to resolve these days to bring him a more tempting proposal. His copera experience is one of the main arguments to retain him and they believe that he could assume a leading role in the team in this new season.
For now, Néstor Zárate, Mauro’s brother and representative, warned that the player also has proposals from Argentine football and MLS, and that surely they will make a decision in the first days of next week.
