Lautaro Giannetti will continue his career at Atlanta United of MLS. The captain of Vélez was requested by Gabriel Heinze, the new coach of the American team, who directed it during his time at El Fortín.
In the next ones, the conditions and figures of the transfer will be officially announced. Giannetti, born in San Nicolás 27 years ago, made his debut in Vélez on March 29, 2012 in a 1-1 draw against Rosario Central. He has registered 103 games and 1 goal for Liniers’ team.
Giannetti will be teammates with Lisandro Licha López, the former Racing striker, who will be another new face for Atlanta United.
Heinze always had him at the center scoreboard among his favorite players. He waited for the recovery from his left knee operation and then consolidated it.
An Argentine who left Atlanta United is right back Fernando Meza. The former San Lorenzo and Olimpo, among others, returned to the country, on loan to Defense and Justice. Previously, Franco Escobar had returned to Newell’s.
