River suffers the lack of forwards

How will the River without Julian Alvarez? If in the next few days at least one hierarchy centre-forward does not arrive, the foggy night of Florencio Varela could have perfectly represented a preview of the next episodes of this serieswhich from July 7 will no longer have the last export jewel of Argentine soccer.

Without Julián affected by the National Team, still without Beltran waiting for their repechage to be unlocked in advance from Colón, with Suarez Y Londoner still injured, the only attack reference was a Brian Romero that does not seem to go through just an occasional dry spell that any point can suffer (including Álvarez himself, in fact) but rather a pronounced drop in level and confidence for which in the last time he was seen against the team.

From the end of 2021 that Braian is far from being the top scorer of Defense or even the 9 that he replaced Borré in the last Libertadores. The chances that BR19 squandered against Halcón give an account of the scenario that CARP is experiencing: they urgently need leading forwards.

Of course, River played against DyJ with many casualties, but on the offensive level, the team’s set-up really seemed like a spoiler of what may come if the club does not speed up negotiations for area players. And it is that from midfield forward, From the 11 base of this 2022 there was not a JA9 who will leave and a De la Cruz who will seek a way out to Europe in this transfer window.

It is so true that Gallardo decided from the end of the second half of 2021 to play with a single 9 as the spearhead with very good results as the leitmotiv of his scheme is called Julián Álvareza player who not only scores goals but generates them and associates himself like no one else with the midfielder circuit.

So, and with a Suárez who cannot be counted as a fixed due to the physical problems that he drags Since his knee operation, it seems mature that the deté needs two or even three attackers. He was exposed not only on Romero’s level but on a bench of substitutes that did not have any battering ram as an alternative.

One – it remains to be seen when – will be, of course, a Beltrán who returns with more friction from the First Division. The other? Today, beyond the utopia that supposes thinking of Castilians or the unsuccessful consultation with Talleres due to Valoyes (valued at more than US$10,000,000), the only open negotiation is for a Borgia that hardly get out of Junior before the semifinals of the Colombian tournament end (on 6/15, if it does not reach the final) and that it will not be an economic process either.

And not only because of MB’s salary, which is ABC1 for South American values: his club does not want to sell him too much and, in principle, he would ask for almost 50% more than the money he invested just six months ago (he paid $3,500,000 to Palmeiras) for half his token: about 5 and a half million dollars.

Of course, the attack deficit should not cause a ditto of nerves: it will be necessary to adjust the sights to look for proven forwards and not to bring for bringing. Above all because the margin of error is already very small: the bet on Fontana last year did not go well (something that, in fact, was ratified at the Tito Tomaghello, already as a rival) and Romero’s for now does not meet expectations either, but this time at the time of the casting neither Borré nor Álvarez will be there as backup. Nor anyone else.

That not only paints a difficult scenario in sports but also in the world of transfers: contrary to what happened in general in the cycle, CARP failed to anticipate Julián’s announced departure, so his replacement will have to put on his shirt and perform but, above all, it will be very expensive: Knowing River’s public urgencies, the selling clubs will be in a very comfortable position to negotiate with inflated prices.

Tic. tock Tic. tock: Álvarez will leave in just a month and if River wants to be competitive in the Libertadores playoffs, they will need to move quickly and well in a market that, MG has already said, is not easy at all. Otherwise, Sunday’s game could have been a free (or not-so-free) taste of the near future.

When does Beltrán arrive at River?

Everything costs River in this market. so much that He has not yet managed to recover a player that belongs to him like Lucas Beltrán. Gallardo was expecting the striker a week ago, but Colón clung to the print of the contract that he signed with CARP for which the Cordovan It can be taken back from its assignment as of July 1.

For these hours there will be a talk between José Vignatti and Matías Patanian to be able to unlock their exit: from Núñez they hope that Colón will agree to extend over time the capital gain of 5% of a future sale as compensation and that the Viking join the training at most early next week. And it is that on Sunday the classic Santa Fe is played and Beltrán is a fixture for Falcioni. Thus, he could be registered in the CL: if he plays the first round of 16 for Negro, he will no longer be able to participate in this edition.
