The positions that Gallardo asked to reinforce in River Plate and the names that can and cannot arrive

River Plate is one game away from finishing its 2021 with the Champions Trophy, but Marcelo Gallardo and the leadership are already planning 2022 and, for now, the coach wants at least three reinforcements.

Javier Gil Navarro told in SportsCenter AM that he Doll asked the new authorities, at a minimum, a central marker, a central midfielder and a forward. And, if possible, one more side.

In River they are pending of the decisions on their future of Javier Pinola and Jonatan Maidana on the continuity of their careers. In addition, that the club is negotiating with Defense and Justice to stay with David Martínez.

In addition, Gallardo will have as “reinforcements” the recoveries of Fabrizio Angileri, Enzo Pérez, Matías Suárez, Braian Romero and Nicolás De la Cruz. However, it is open to other arrivals that do not mean a great expense to the club.


Juan Fernando Quintero: YES. The return of the Colombian midfielder sounds almost like a fact, due to his good relationship with Gallardo, because he is a proven player in River and his desire to leave China, to be more available for his National Team. You can return to loan in January.

Emanuel Mammana: YES. The defender is in the country on vacation, about to be released in Russian Sochi. He already exorcised that he rejected offers for the possibility of returning to the Millionaire.

Emiliano Rigoni: NO. His representative has already ruled out that option. He has a contract until 2024 at San Pablo.

Roberto Pereyra: NI. By the hour, only the name of the Udinese midfielder came up. There is nothing concrete.

Matías Kranevitter: NO. The 28-year-old midfielder is doing well at Monterrey, where he charges very well. And no one from River contacted him.
