Martínez Quarta is willing to move to Celta de Vigo, in the event that River receives the formal offer, according to Gustavo Goñi, the defender’s representative.
“There are polls, but nothing official. We are talking ”, commented the businessman in 90 Minutes of Soccer. In addition, he commented that, although the termination clause is very high, they know that no club in Europe is making large expenses to pay in full.
“The Martinez Quarta clause is $ 22 million. Nobody is doing crazy things or big investments in Europe, “said Goñi, who was optimistic about a possible negotiation.
Regarding the decision of the center-back, the businessman was blunt: “The player believes that it is a good time to take the leap. Because of sports and the monetary instability of Argentina ”.
“It is not unreasonable to think of a 50 percent sale,” Goñi commented, adding: “If this offer from Celta arrives, I would accept it.” “The player did not speak with Gallardo, he will do so if the interest of the club becomes official,” the representative concluded.
Martínez Quarta is one of the salable players in advance for River along with Gonzalo Montiel and Juanfer Quintero. The center-back is one of the few who has a change in the hierarchy in the Millionaire, since Javier Pinola, Robert Rojas and Paulo Díaz were at a good level before the stoppage.
