'We hope he can arrive'

The coach of the millionaire club spoke about the Colombian striker in his last press conference.

The exit of Enzo Fernández could happen. They are in the market, on the radar. It happened with Julián (Alvarez), now with him. I am happy with their football growth. For us these are very important losses, we are a country that exports soccer players. You always have to look for alternatives, we add a good footballer like Aliendro, with a good news. He is going to give us a hand. You have to live with that. He is a good player and offers us variants”, Gallardo explained in his most recent press conference.

Then, regarding the possible arrival of the Uruguayan Luis Suárez or the Colombian Miguel Ángel Borja, the helmsman explained:

“Luis Suárez is an elite footballer, he is recovering from a knee cleaning. If he comes today, he can't play tomorrow. Our waiting is according to his times. We need a player of that caliber. Our waiting goes hand in hand with his evolution. If the possibilities are connected, there is a good disposition on both sides and it will be there or not. He showed desire and enthusiasm, otherwise we wouldn't be waiting for him. He assumed that it excites him, it will be his decision. We are a viable option. We must not lie to people, a name of that size we know what it means. And for Argentine football it would also be something important. Borja got stuck a little bit, but we hope that in the next few days he can get unstuck and arrive. The leaders are working very well on that“.

The dialogues between the parties remain firm. It remains to be seen if they reach a consensus.
