Midfielder Juanfer Quintero confirmed today that he will play for River again. Beyond the fact that some formal details remain, it is a fact that he will have his second period in the Millionaire.
“In the next few hours he will be a River player,” the Colombian confirmed when asked at a press conference that the Colombian National Team gave before the friendly that will be played with Honduras.
The player commented that “in a few days it will be official” his return to the “millionaire” club, to put himself back under the orders of Marcelo Gallardo “I have made the decision to go to River. I want to thank you for your trust, I am very happy. We know that River always fights for important things. I have already had the opportunity to experience the Mundo River”, said the Colombian, who left China’s Shenzhen due to lack of payment.
The River fan had already assured the possibility after it became known that Jorge Carrascal stopped wearing the millionaire pilcha with number 10. The photos had circulated in the first days of the team’s preseason in San Martin de los Andes.
The truth is that the player himself was the one who opened the doors for his return to the “millionaire”, given that this year he wants to have continuity to be able to be on the list to -if necessary- take part in the World Cup in Qatar.
It is not yet defined when Quintero would join the squad led by Marcelo Gallardo, beyond the fact that he would do so in Buenos Aires and not in the preseason that the team carries out until the 18th of this month in San Martín de los Andes.

Jorge Carrascal is wanted by Nacional de Uruguay
The Bag would offer a loan and the Millionaire does not close the doors to the proposal, but he asked for a high figure for the loan, something that would complicate the operation.
The Copa Libertadores is the ultimate goal that all participating clubs set for themselves at the start of a new year. Each one seeks to strengthen and prepare to be able to fight until the end to be the champion of America. And River, who arrived in San Martín de los Andes to start the first part of the preseason, is no exception, nor is Nacional de Uruguay, three-time continental champion, who is looking for one of the Millionaire figures.
The Bag wants Jorge Carrascal and seeks a loan for River’s 10, still without a confirmed place among Marcelo Gallardo’s 11 starters. El Millo did not close the door to a possible assignment, but what he did was respond by asking for a high figure as a charge, something that would complicate the operation.
For now, the 23-year-old Colombian is in San Martín de los Andes along with the rest of the squad, putting first in the preparation that will make them endure a whole year of maximum competition. Thus, his third season at the club begins, and he dreams of being the one that will definitely catapult him as an important piece in the Muñeco team.
