River Plate president Jorge Brito admitted tonight that the transfer market in terms of incorporations could involve “one or two new players”, while recognizing as “certain” the conversations that have begun to attempt the arrival of Uruguayan striker Luis. Suárez.
“The (transfer) market is very difficult because we need it (the reinforcement) now and we know that the market closes in August. We are looking for a solution, they will be one or two players,” said the Millionaire manager.
“This is a very special year because it is the World Cup and the times that are managed are different”, added the highest authority of the Núñez entity.

Speaking to a fan broadcast on FM Radio Top, Brito acknowledged that the possibility of adding the crack Luis Suárez, Atlético de Madrid’s last step, is “true”.
“We cannot provide details on the negotiation, it is not something we do and that is why we will not even mention the names”, the technician apologized.
Referring to the playoff requested of the Colón de Santa Fe by the forward Lucas Beltrán, the president of the “millionaire” club said: “We understand the situation and the fact that Colón wants the contract to be respected until June 30”.
“But the spirit of the contract is up to the end of the tournaments. That’s why we hope that Colón takes this situation into account,” clarified Brito.
Beltrán’s arrival in this market has become difficult, because the Sabalera entity intends to use the striker in the first leg of the Copa Libertadores round of 16 against Talleres de Córdoba.
“If they leave it written (Beltrán) we will not be able to use it. We hope to continue to have a good relationship,” the River chief warned of a possible decision by Colón to strictly adhere to the date of the player’s loan connection. .
It is that, by regulation, if Colón scores and uses a player in this second phase of the maximum continental competition, no other team can request his services, even in the case (as in the case of River) of the club that owns his puck.
