San Lorenzo evaluates 'hanging' captain Gattoni if ​​he does not renew this week, amid rumors about an offer from Sevilla


The contract for the Barça central marker expires in the middle of the year and he has not yet signed a new link. Another front of conflict days after the debut in the Professional League.

Among so many issues to resolve in these days prior to the start of the official competition, in

San Lorenzo

there is a central theme:

the renewal of Federico Gattoni


He is the captain of the team and for

Ruben Darío Insua

he is a key player in the defensive structure.

But he still has not signed to extend his relationship, which expires in June this year and

he could be released


To make matters worse, versions began to circulate strongly from Spain about a strong interest from

Jorge Sampaoli's Sevilla

, who is looking for a defender.

In Boedo they warn that if they do not agree this week it will not be taken into account


Conflict at the door?

The Cyclone will receive


on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. for the first date of the championship.

Surely the New Gasometer will fill up to see the cast of Gallego again, who finished 2022 with a smile with a good level of play and qualification for the Copa Sudamericana.

However, an important footballer in the starting squad may miss that reunion.

The rope in the negotiation for the renewal of Gattoni was tightened to the limit and if there is no happy ending before Friday,

the 23-year-old defender will be removed from the squad, if the leadership complies with what it low warns


It is that the debut in the tournament is the deadline that they set from the Board of Directors to cut a situation that has been in talks for months without a defined port.

In Boedo, the sources consulted claim to be optimistic that everything will end with the footballer who emerged from the Inferior Ravens stamping his autograph.

But at the same time they open the umbrella.


The main knot is in the exit clause


In his current contract is

15 million dollars


But from Gattoni's representation they became firm that to renew that amount it had to drop drastically: to 1.5 million.

In San Lorenzo they put the cry in the clouds since it is a very low number.

A possible solution that is being analyzed is that there are two termination clauses, one for abroad and the other for local football


The truth is that the days go by and Gattoni does not seal his new bond.

Something similar had already happened before signing his previous contract.

In Boedo there are no good references to

Marcelo Lombilla

, Gattoni's agent.

He has been in their sights at the Barça club since 2018, when the youthful

Francisco Bonfiglio

, under his representation, went to

Villarreal of Spain

through parental authority .

From that moment on, every negotiation that involves him has been cumbersome for San Lorenzo.

Now, while in the Cyclone they wait with the contract on the table, on the other side of the Atlantic they say that Seville wants it.

Spanish media are even encouraged to give it as almost a reinforcement of the Andalusian club, which must free up a place in its squad to be able to add another incorporation.

In Boedo they maintain that they know nothing about this.

A piece of information: two weeks ago, the player traveled to Italy with the permission of the leadership to process citizenship and for this reason he missed five days of preseason in Uruguay

The concrete thing is that to get out in this market, Gattoni should be sold or agree to a compensation that is accepted by San Lorenzo.

Otherwise, to leave with the pass in his possession he will have to wait until the middle of the year.

But the central defender said several times that he does not intend to go wrong with the Barça entity that trained him professionally.

The end of this story is not yet written.

But it is entering culminating moments.

Momentous hours are coming between Gattoni and San Lorenzo.

"The Rock" Sánchez joins

Meanwhile, in the Cyclone they were in charge of closing the fourth reinforcement.

This is Carlos Sánchez, a Colombian midfielder who can also play as a libero in the five-defender scheme that Ruben Darío Insua uses in San Lorenzo.

Differences had arisen last week regarding the length of the contract for this 36-year-old midfielder.

It is that the player who comes free from Independiente Santa Fe de Bogotá wanted to sign for two years, while in Boedo they offered him one.

How was it fixed?

Sánchez accepted a one-year contract but with the option of an automatic renewal if he plays 70 percent of the games played by the Gallego team in 2023.

Between Tuesday and Wednesday, the Colombian will arrive in the country to undergo a medical examination and seal their bond.
