The only interesting thing that has been happening at the club lately are the transfer rumours. Just like in previous weeks, there couldn't be any missing this time. Maxi Lopez seems to be very close to re-joining River Plate. His loan with Mallorca is about to end, and he will return to Barcelona. The problem is, there isn't a shot in hell of him playing even a minute with Barca's jersey next semester. Therefore, the Spanish club is interested in loaning him out and giving him a better economic value in the future. So where does River come into this? Well, the club is looking for a foward (especially with the possible departure of Ernesto Farias), and Maxi is supposedly willing to return for a year.
What do I think? Well, to tell you the truth, I really don't know. I never really thought he was that great of a player, but I loved the "baile" he gave Boca upon entering the field for an injured Marcelo Salas in 2004. Unfortunately, the other image I have of him was when he missed the penalty vs. Boca that left us out of the Copa Libertadores that same year. Other than those two matches, he was never someone I liked that much.
Either way, I guess it wouldn't be that bad: he isn't a bad player and the club would be getting him for a very cheap price. My only problem with his arrival would be that the youngsters wouldn't get too many chances. Aside from that, we need a goleador, and that doesn't match Maxi Lopez's description (or pretty much any of our starting fowards').
I guess only time will tell if he returns or not.
