The fall in the negotiations of Colo Colo with Marcelo Moreno Martins made the leadership of Blanco y Negro quickly start to think about other alternatives to reinforce the attack of Gustavo Quinteros’ team.
One of the names that appeared in the last hours was that of the former Palestinian Lucas Passerini, attacker that Currently he is a member of the Cruz Azul de México, without enjoying the best of those present after a good campaign in Chilean football a couple of seasons ago.
According to information provided by Radio Cooperativa, the attacker is interested in coming to the Monumental, but his high salary is an important obstacle for the leadership of Blanco y Negro, who were only going to pay the 40 million a month to Martins for the quality of player that he was bringing.
Passerini had a good time for Palestino in the 2019 season, scoring 16 goals in 30 games with the Arabs. Regrettably could not replicate those numbers in Mexican soccer, with five goals in a year and a half between Cruz Azul and a loan from Necaxa.
The Cacique already contacted Passerini in the past, but the presence of Nicolás Blandi and the lack of places for foreigners in the Monumental ended up throwing away any option that the Argentine ended up arriving.
Gustavo Quinteros already warned after the victory against Unión Española, where too many goal options were wasted, that he needs a new center-forward in the Cacique. Will the name of Passerini be the one?
