Boca Juniors continues fine-tuning the final details for the season that will begin at the end of January, with the start of The Professional League. While the team he commands Hugo Ibarra prepares for the second friendly against Chilean Evertonfor him Summer Tournament in San Juanthe Football Council look for reinforcements.

And one of the key and most necessary positions is that of the central marker, after the conflictive departure of Carlos Zambrano (rescinded due to acts of indiscipline) and sick leave due to injury to red frames (recovering from ligament surgery) and Nicholas Figal (tear). At this point, the leadership aims to add at least two footballers in that sector.

In the last few hours, a name was added to the dialogue table between Boca Juniors and Independiente that had already been probed in passing markets in the past: Sergio Barreto. The 23-year-old right-footed central defender is the player to sell at Red, who need fresh money in their coffers to improve the club’s difficult financial situation. 6 million dollars would be the ones that Avellaneda’s painting would ask for and so settle the claim of America from Mexico, although for 4 million of the American coin I would release him.

The truth is Xeneize continues in talks with Huracán for Luca Merolla, which does not indicate that both can be added as reinforcements given the urgency of players in that position. What’s more, the Football Council would have offered footballers to be part of the negotiation and in the Red they showed interest in Marcelo Weigandtfirst replacement for Luis Advíncula, and Pedro Velurtas, the right side of the reserve.

From Boca Juniors they made it clear that the intention is not to give Independiente players on loan, while those from Avellaneda clarified that the priority is a sale. This does not indicate that they cannot reach an agreement, that some footballers enter into the negotiation and that at the same time Red receives money to continue catching up on debts. The next few hours will be key to see if this time both teams reach an agreement.
