The transfer market for River still had neither low nor high. That they have closed the transfer windows in Europe and no footballer has been transferred was good news for Gallardo because there were concrete chances as happened with Gonzalo Montiel, for example. Nevertheless, The Doll still cannot be calm because there are other markets (Brazil and the United States mainly) that will be open from March and they are tempting for River players. The most concrete chance and in the process of closing is that of Ignacio Fernández and Atlético Mineiro. The Brazilians have already approached an offer that in Núñez they want to be improved to fulfill Nacho’s desire to emigrate to make an economic difference.
River owns 70% of the left-handed pass (25% is still from Gymnastics and the other 5% from the footballer himself) and would have $ 4,200,000 left of the 6 million that the Brazilians proposed to pay. However, the expectation in the club is to get 6 million clean that remain for River. Between the desire of Jorge Sampaoli, DT del Mineiro, to have Fernández and Nacho’s desire, everything is aimed at reaching an agreement between the parties in the coming days.
River owns 70% of Nacho’s pass and aims to receive at least $ 6 million from the sale. For now, the offer is lower, but Mineiro will make a higher offer.
The left-hander’s departure will leave Gallardo a very important hole in his team, since he is the Brain of the team, as Nacho was baptized by his own teammates. And so the Doll pointed to Agustín Palavecino, an Argentine hitch that emerged in Platense and stands out in Deportivo Cali. River has already offered to incorporate it into a loan with a purchase option, but the Colombian club intends to sell it. In addition, he also received surveys from other clubs seeking him: Palmeiras would be the biggest competitor for El Más Grande.
But if the sale of Nacho Fernández is completed, River will have a vacant number 10 shirt and many dollars in the treasury. So, with that income from that operation, he could present a proposal that convinces Colombians to negotiate his figure, who has already told the leaders that his dream is to play for River. Well then, a transfer could be the key to another and thus the pass market begins to move in Núñez. Then we will have to see, in case the arrival of Palavecino takes place, if Gallardo receives him with the emblematic shirt and gives him the responsibility of wearing the 10 as he did, for example, when Gonzalo Martínez came from Huracán.
