As you remember, the last game of ‘Valegol’ with a ‘U’ shirt was on July 16 against Universidad San Martín, whose score was 4-0, in favor of the cream cast. In that game, the Peruvian striker opened the account via penalty and that was his last entry with those led by Carlos Compagnucci.

The leader said that at first they refused to negotiate the scorer’s pass, but seeing that they were no longer going to count on him in the sporting aspect, they decided to sell him. He described the transfer as the best the institution has made in its history.
“We made the decision to renegotiate because in sports we no longer had Alex Valera, with this we turn the page and now we only focus on seeing the improvement of the team in the championship. The only thing I can tell you is that the proposal considerably improved the one we initially had on file. This transfer is not only historic for Peruvian football, perhaps the second, but also the most important sale for Universitario in its entire history.”Barreto exclaimed.
