Perhaps Juan roman riquelme took note of the failed contract renewal negotiations with Julio Buffarini, with Cristian Pavón, with Edward Salvio. In fact, with Kichán there was not even a formality in the talks: suddenly they were interrupted until the contractual relationship was extinguished. With Salvio there was a long prelude of unproductive silences and a rush attempt that did not prosper and that ended with Toto playing in Mexico. There is, at least on the surface, a change in trend in Boca: a year before the end of the relationship there is talks with Agustin Rossi, perhaps the most important player of the JR cycle at the head of football. And 18 months in advance, Boca picked up the phone and proposed to town an extension to 2024.
Beyond the forms, there is a basic difficulty that clubs face in almost all latitudes, perhaps the product of a certain imbalance in the relationship between players and clubs. In these times, it is the footballers, stars or stars, who have the power that grants knowing themselves in total freedom once the bond expires. Six months before, in fact, they are able to negotiate with the team they want.
It happened to River with Angileri and Rollheiser, who left with the pass in their possession. And he is going through with Nicolás de la Cruz with whom, beyond his intention to continue in the club, there is still no arrangement. The problem has nothing to do with the bank account: he almost passed PSG with Mbappé. And perhaps for that reason, the club would offer Messi another year… In such a case, everyone finds the right shape for their wallet so that the situation becomes complicated. Returning to Boca, perhaps the Council could do well to help the negotiation by abandoning some positions that are too rigid when dealing with agents and players. And understand that to win, sometimes you have to give a little. In order not to lose everything…
