Eduardo Dominguez don’t hide anymore. Whenever he is asked about the arrival of reinforcements, he exposes his disagreement on how to lead Independent is pursuing a market that for now has a new face in the team: Ivan Marconi. After qualifying for the second round of the Argentine Cup, the coach preferred not to speak because, it is said, he was flying with anger at the arrival of Rodrigo Allendro to River, the midfielder whom he himself had agreed to bring in red. And after the heavy defeat of Paraná, he showed his face and when asked about the names that sound, he said it all with ironic gestures and closing the press conference. How are the negotiations?
This weekend Domínguez could have his second reinforcement. There is a principle of verbal agreement with Facundo Ferreyra, located in Xolos de Tijuana. The 31-year-old striker is not an express request of the coach and was not among the priorities in the offensive position, as were Martín Cauteruccio and Franco Di Santo. But faced with the drought of the alternatives, he gave his consent.
Domínguez believes he is a scorer to be recovered as his performance has declined in recent seasons. chucky He left Banfield, went to Velez and from there went to Shakhtar Donetsk, from Ukraine. His good level made him make the leap to Newcastle in the Premier League. But he couldn’t stay there and went back to Shakhtar, where he had his best time. His new destination was Benfica from Portugal in 2018, although he played next to nothing and was loaned to Español. In football in Spain he broke a knee and from that moment everything became very difficult in his career.

He had a stint at Celta de Vigo and at the end of his contract he would switch to Colo-Colo from Chile, but changed on the fly and went to Cluj from Romania. Big mistake. It failed the medical review in the first instance, and a confusing misunderstanding later occurred due to an alleged commission. Ferreyra didn’t add minutes and had to go to Xolos earlier this year. He comes after playing 14 games and scoring just one goal.
Now, if by now they finish sealing the details, I would get on loan for six months (it is a question of providing for the possibility of extending the assignment in December) with a charge of 200 thousand dollars and a purchase option of 2.5 million dollars, a figure that today is impossible for the Avellaneda club to pay. Chucky already has tickets to travel to Argentina this Friday, but is awaiting final confirmation.
Another for which they finalize the details The Uruguayan Edgar Elizalde, left-handed central defender who is currently in Peñarol even though his pass belongs to the Italian Pescara, who wants to sell his record. Independiente has offered $ 600,000 for the total amount of his pass and is negotiating a capital gain from a future sale for the Italian entity. To close.

Elizalde is 22 years old and measures 1.82 meters. He has a past in the Uruguayan youth teams. He has already given his approval to enter the Devil and Pescara has no choice but to finish raising his thumb, which could happen in these hours.
Meanwhile, the names of Lucas Gamba, Elias Pereyra and Gabriel Hachen. From the technical staff they evaluate their situations. Another requirement of Domínguez is to try to hold back Geronimo Poblete, now a title in its formation. Poblete has an agreement with Lanús, but against the clock from Avellaneda they have sent him a new offer to be renewed and they hope to materialize. His bond expires this Thursday and if an agreement is not reached he will not be able to play on Monday against Platense.
Those who won’t renew are Domingo Blanco, Andres Roa and Carlos Benavidez, excluded a long time ago as it was known that they would be free at the end of June. Thus, Independiente continues to decapitalize by losing a value from the quarry like Blanco and two footballers for whom he put millions of dollars and never got them back.
