River Plate increases demand for De La Cruz, but Flamengo does not give up

Flamengo is still looking to hire Nicolás De La Cruz, from River Plate, the Argentine club asks for almost twice as much as offered, but Mengão does not give up

In recent weeks, whenever the subject was the new reinforcements, Marcos Brazvice president of Flamengohad to answer about the negotiation for Nicolas De La Cruzof river plate. On more than one occasion, the manager stated that the Argentine club “sat on the fine”, indicating that no proposal for the player below his termination fee would be accepted.

Therefore, River remains adamant in this request and, in addition, expects to receive payment in cash. Therefore, if Flamengo wants to close a deal with the Argentines, it will have to spend 16 million dollars, about R$ 77.7 million at the current exchange rate. Mengão seeks to circumvent this situation, but does not give up on hiring.

Despite all the difficulties in closing the deal, especially the payment method, Flamengo will not give up anytime soon. The reason for the persistence of the club in Uruguay is due to the characteristics of the player on the field, which fit perfectly with the style of play that Jorge Sampaoli been implementing in the team.

According to ‘GE‘, one of the reasons for River Plate not to facilitate the negotiation is the fact that it is strengthening a rival, mainly dealing with the dispute for liberators. De La Cruz’s economic rights are managed in a partnership between the Argentine club and the Liverpool, from Uruguay, but the player’s current team dictates the molds of the business.

It is worth mentioning that Flamengo’s last proposal was 8.5 million euros, about R$ 41.3 million, just over half of what River Plate is asking. Thus, the club from Rio is dealing with the negotiation at the same time that it talks with claudinho, as one contract cancels the other. If the Brazilian Zenit close with Mengão, the Uruguayan will no longer be a priority.
