River Plate faces a new recess and a transfer market in which there are no higher expectations, because the most important thing this year will be in December, when Marcelo Gallardo must define whether or not to renew the contract, but this time with elections through.
The departure of Rodolfo D’Onofrio from the presidency may mark the end of an era for Núñez’s club. That will depend on whether the official Jorge Brito-Matías Patanián formula knows how to give continuity to the project.
Javier Gil Navarro anticipated in SportsCenter AM that regardless of who wins in the next elections, for the coach there is an exclusive condition to continue or not to command the first team of River Plate and the entire project that involves the development of the inferiors.
For Gallardo it is essential that the new leadership be able to give him a competitive team and not only with players with projection as it was in the past market with Agustín Palavecino, José Paradela and Agustín Fontana. In other words, the task of balancing the accounts will have to be postponed.
At present, River knows that it will be difficult for him to retain figures like Gonzalo Montiel and Fabrizio Angileri, as well as Nicolás De La Cruz. They will try to buy a pass from Rafael Borré in June, but the financial issue may be decisive.
Then, the output of any or all of these footballers and others must be covered with footballers of the same category. Gallardo cares that players arrive in the next market who can give the team a leap in quality and between now and December the sporting challenges and River’s chances of fighting on all fronts will be key so that they do not lose their man again. valuable.
