Sebastián Battaglia tested negative and will join training

While Boca suffers from the large number of players infected with Covid-19, today he added good news after confirming that the coach, Sebastián Battaglia, tested negative in the PCR test and will be able to direct the practice tomorrow.

Xeneize found itself – like practically all Argentine soccer teams – with the bad news that it had eight infected players who were not going to be able to start the preseason. Thus, the return to training was uneven, although little by little those affected will be incorporated as they are discharged.

Who were the infected? Agustín Rossi, Marcelo Weigandt, Gastón Ávila, Carlos Zambrano, Alan Varela, Rodrigo Montes, Cristian Pavón and Eduardo Salvio. Of all of them, Salvio has already been discharged and joined training today, while Pavón should do the same tomorrow.

Boca, very active in the transfer market

The main target remains Darío Benedetto. The forward already spoke with Juan Román Riquelme, who let him know what Boca could pay him if he decides to return. Now, in the Xeneize they await the response of the attacker, who will have to initiate talks with Elche and Olympique de Marseille to return to Brandsen 805, if he so wishes.

Cardona one step away from being the new reinforcement of Racing Club

The Academy began the preseason for the first time with Fernando Gago as coach and continues to move strongly in the transfer market and the truth is that the new reinforcement of Racing is getting closer and closer. After adding Gabriel Hauche and Facundo Mura, and waiting to solve the problem with Tomás Chancalay, those from Avellaneda were one step away from closing an important request from the coach: Edwin Cardona.

The Colombian, from the last season on loan to Boca, could join the Avellaneda team, which reached an agreement with the Xolos de Tijuana de México, the club that owns its file, for the purchase of 50% of the pass, although the amounts of the operation.

In this way, only details of the contract with the player remain, which would be for three years, so that the talented midfielder becomes the third incorporation of Racing, which this year will have triple competition with the Professional League, the South American Cup and the Copa Argentina, tournaments that aim to win.
