The Uruguayan midfield midfielder has been under Gallardo’s scrutiny for a long time and is one of the options to strengthen the midfield, although an extra factor complicates things.
Long time ago River comes following the steps of Manuel Castro, the jewel of Students He has been in La Plata for two years, but in the last Professional League he exploited his potential, something that made Marcelo Gallardo’s eyes fall on him. Now, in the new pass market of 2022, interest from Nuñez reawakened.
The millionaire team has several hierarchical midfielders, but in a team where the competition does not stop to obtain a place among the eleven starters, the Doll knows well that bringing in new faces will promote motivation among the players on the squad. For this reason, it has the name of the Uruguayan flyer who had a great performance in the last local championship, with seven goals and one assist in 19 games played.
Castro is midfielder on the right, with good arrival to the area, but also supportive and collaborative when defending. One of its virtues is “chop into space“, something that is not abundant in the middle area of River, where the game mostly passes through the center of the court with names like Enzo Pérez, Palavecino, Simón, Enzo Fernández, etc.
However, Castro is only closely followed by River and evaluated; there was no formal offer some to get their services. What’s more, there is a complication for which the Millionaire would find it difficult to hire the 26-year-old player.
Juanfer Quintero, the factor that would influence a possible arrival of Manuel Castro to River
The arrival of Juanfer Quintero to the coffers of River It is being desired, and a lot. Details of his separation from Chinese Shenzhen remain, in addition to the contract that the Colombian will have in Argentina, so that he can wear the Millo shirt for the second time in his career. However, in case of materialization, it would take away other foreign footballers.
River already has Robert Red (Paraguay), Paulo Diaz (Chile), Jorge Carrascal (Colombia) and Nicolás From the cross (Uruguayan who wants to obtain dual citizenship, but is stuck for the moment). Therefore, if Quintero arrives, he will occupy a fifth place in the quota of foreigners, that allows a maximum of six footballers in the squad, but five in the roster of an Argentine soccer game. In that case, the sixth in contention would be Castro, so a possible negotiation for him would depend on the future of Juanfer.
