River Plate seems to be close to fulfilling the dream of having Miguel Borgia in their ranks. The ‘millionaires’ team hopes to be able to count on the attacker from Junior for this second part of the year, because his star scorer, Julián Álvarez, will leave for Manchester City. The Colombian was chosen by Marcelo Gallardo to replace the young striker.
As explained Clear Brand, the Argentine directors and the barranquilleros already reached an agreement for the departure of the soccer player; however, when it seemed that everything would be ready, a new problem appeared: palm trees he’s not entirely happy with the offer.
The Brazilians believe that the money to be paid for the striker is insufficient and they do not agree with his sale to River. The ‘Verdao’ is the owner of 50% of Borja’s pass and if he does not give the go-ahead for his departure, it cannot be carried out. Those of Núñez will have to improve the contract to keep them happy.
Borja landed in Junior in 2021, after the “Tiburón” team paid Palmeiras 3.5 million dollars for half of his signing. It is true that the player explained that he is happy with his presence in the institution, but everything could have changed after the surprise elimination from the South American Cup.
From Buenos Aires they hope to be able to close the negotiation as soon as possible; Above all, because this Saturday closes the deadline to register new soccer players for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores. The problem is expected to be resolved in the next few hours and Borja will ‘stamp’ his signature.
Although he is one of the top scorers in the BetPlay League, the striker is among the FPC players who were most undervalued, according to the well-known Transfermarkt page.
According to the aforementioned website, the market value of the attacker suffered a drop of 300,000 euros compared to its last price. Now, its price is €3.7 million.
