What until yesterday were rumors and polls became a formal offer on letterhead: Celta de Vigo offered River five and a half million euros for half of Lucas Martínez Quarta’s pass.
“The Martinez Quarta clause is $ 22 million. Nobody is doing crazy things or big investments in Europe ”, the player’s representative Gustavo Goñi had said a few hours ago, anticipating this move a bit.
In the same radio interview he had stated that “The player believes that it is a good time to take the leap. Because of sports and the monetary instability of Argentina ”.
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.
The ball is now held by the River leaders and we will see how they decide to play.
