Is happy Marcelo gallardo. First, because of the climate with which San Martín de los Andes received River: Unlike the 2020 preseason, with winter temperatures and many rainy days, this time Patagonia cleared the sky and there is a friendly warmth, which is also quite far from the hot flush in Buenos Aires. A couple of years ago the Doll had that distaste left: due to the cold and the falling water, he could not show in its splendor a place that he already knew in detail or do some activities that he had diagrammed, such as the bike ride that this Wednesday.
In this context, the coach is also very attentive to what is happening in the market. Like everyone at the club, keep your fingers crossed that an offer that reaches the clause of Julian Alvarez and already with Pochettino, Mammana and González Pirez and with Juan Fernando Quintero When he falls, he thinks about what the squad is lacking to finish assembling for a season that will have many games in a short time. And there are two since he is concerned: the right tip marker and also the left. That is why he goes on the attack from the side.
Even if Fabricio Bustos is a priority for the position he occupies Robert Rojas, the panorama with the 25-year-old leading marker is still stuck at the same point: River and Red have an agreement in principle (u $ s 1,500,000, the cancellation of the debt of 206 thousand dollars by Barboza and the possible cession of Vigo) but the footballer who in June will be left with the pass in his power has not decided to take the step. In River They trust that from one moment to another there may be news but what is clear is that if the days continue to pass and Bustos does not give signs, Gallardo will not get off the search for a four.

And it is that the Doll sees that today he has a Rojas in that position who ended up playing there out of sheer will and sacrifice but that He has not yet finished transforming into an attacking side like the ones that the deté always liked. As it happened with Montiel, he thinks that it will take a while for another footballer who, like Cachete, is originally central. And if even with this scenario, the Paraguayan is above Vigo in MG’s consideration, it is clear that the former Colón is still not a reliable option. Therefore, while waiting for Bustos, the coaching staff will begin to evaluate other possibilities during these hours.
As for the left back, the coach barely has the stainless Milton Casco. Not one more. With Fabrizio Angileri training at the Camp together with Benjamín Rollheiser after the DC policy change for those who do not renew their contract a few months after being released, there was no progress and the situation is at its point of maximum tension because the Mendoza considers that the proposal that I send you River, being for three seasons and considering it meager, conspires against his idea of making the difference that until now he could not achieve.
At that point, Gallardo It is decided: just as it was always he who prioritized sports over economics by asking that footballers who did not renew play until the last day before leaving with the pass, today the deté coincides with Angileri (as well as Rollheiser) not returning until he signs. That is why he begins to study market options to reinforce that position if a situation of no return is reached in the talks with FA.
In that sense, one of the names that came up again is Milton valenzuela, the former Newell’s who has just been released from the MLS Columbus Crew: even without having initiated formal negotiations with his agents, the 23-year-old kid who went through the AFA Youth is one of the variants in the portfolio. For the rest, the most winning deté in history has everything quite covered if the already well-announced arrival of Quintero takes place, except for the lead.
With Suárez, who is still an enigma from the physical, Rollheiser also in conflict (for the kid of Coronel Suárez there was no progress either), a Girotti who is behind in the consideration and who will seek through his agent an exit on loan abroad to win filming, plus the loss of a Fontana yielded to Defense and the uncertainty in the case of Julián Álvarez, Today Gallardo barely has JA9, Braian Romero and Colombian rookie Flabian Londoño Bedoya.
Unless you decide to keep what you have and bet on playing this season with a single tip taking advantage of the amount of steering wheels with good footing that it hasIt would not be strange for River to hunt for a point, which is hardly a Castellanos Valentine who on Tuesday surprised with a desire that -beyond an eventual call- for now exists only in his head.
Other name? “Brian Ocampo He is a great player and we will see how the River. If not, we are happy that he continues here ”, declared Alejandro Balbi, vice of Nacional, regarding the Uruguayan winger who is a fan of the Band: in Núñez for now they say that there is nothing formal for him. And they attack from the side.
