Because of the vile money, that which in times of pandemic no one can reject, River Plate has not said that Jorge Carrascal is not for sale. But it’s like it is.
Given the interest of Al Ain of the Arab Emirates for the Colombian, Núñez’s club referred to the contracts and not to the talks: the only way to remove him from the team, at this time, is to pay the 20 million euros that were established as a termination clause at the time of the purchase of 90 percent of its federative rights, which were around 3 million euros.
No exchanges, no assignments, no nothing. Thus, without further ado, not only the Arabs but many other interested parties have understood the message and have withdrawn from the bid, realizing that it is a key piece for coach Marcelo Gallardo.
And it is that the Colombian creative has been gaining his space out of patience and work and has been improving his team play, which has made him a very important man for River, who already gave money to Juan Fernando Quintero ( 10 million to the Chinese Super League) and is not willing to make another similar ‘sacrifice’.
Carrascal has been key in the round of 16 and quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores and is indispensable against Palmeiras, this Tuesday’s rival, in the semifinal.
