Waiting for the match against the Squid, the Xeneize received news that could change the present and future of the team for the rest of the year and 2023. According to several Uruguayan journalists, Edison Cavani would have made the decision to play in Boca in the run-up to the World Cup in Qatar and throughout the coming season.
As the offer that he would have from Villarreal of Spain would have been delayed, and with the idea of not wasting any more time in his preparation for the great event of the year in the world of football, the former Manchester United striker would have given the go-ahead to Juan Román Riquelme and now it remains to wait for the parties to agree so that the negotiation can be finalized in the next few hours.
We must remember that the transfer market closes on Monday at 8:00 p.m. That is why the weekend will be decisive to know if the Uruguayan will be able to fulfill his dream of wearing the same shirt that his idol, Sergio, wore. the butter Martinez during the 1990s.
In addition to the situation of the arrival of the attacker of the Uruguayan team, it must be remembered that at the beginning of the week it was confirmed that Agustín Rossi did not accept the renewal proposal offered by Xeneize and his future is unknown. Beyond what happened, the goalkeeper will start tonight at the Bombonera and it will be necessary to see if the Football Council will look for a possible replacement before the closing of the transfer window or the former Chacarita will continue to be number 1 until, at least, the end of the competition.
Facing the duel against Platense, Hugo Ibarra will only make one modification with respect to the starting eleven that fell to Patronato in Paraná 3-0. in defense, Frank Fabra will leave his place to Agustín Sandez.
