The striker is going through a great moment and is one of the options to reinforce Gustavo Quinteros’ team in the second half of 2022.
Leandro Benegas scored again in Independiente, this time he did it in Rojo’s victory against Estudiantes by 2-1, where he also made the penalty kick that gave Avellaneda’s team the win.
After the game, the attacker spoke for the first time of Colo Colo’s interest in him, being Gustavo Quinteros’ main card to strengthen the team for the second half.
“Last week I know that an offer came from Colo Colo, but I told my representative that it has to be something that cannot be refused. I really enjoy being in Independiente,” the forward clarified.
The journalist Matías Martínez of Radio La Red and who covers the news of Independiente, told about the offer made by Blanco y Negro to have the player’s service: it was insufficient.
“Colo Colo offered compensation to Independiente to terminate Leandro Benegas’ contract (he has 6 months left). The offer was less than 500,000 USD for the club. Independiente considered it insufficient,” he explained.
