Will JP Carrizo Stay?: New Fresh Sources of Cash

The club needs to make at least $10,000,000 in sales over this break to keep up with the economic needs. Selling Juan Pablo Carrizo could easily clear up the situation, but his importance to the team has made the club opt to sell other players. Surprisingly, the smaller, less-important players seem to be wanted more. Here's a list of sources that could provide us with some of the money needed:

Jose Sand: Lanús was able to win the race to keep the foward. The agreement was for $1,000,000 dollars, which will be payed on July 1st.

Cristian Tula: San Lorenzo will pay the $500,000 necessary to keep the defender, as well as the $100,000 fine for using him vs. River in the Clausura.

Federico Domínguez and Diego Galván: San Lorenzo's directives inquired about the price tag of these two players.

Danilo Gerlo: Salzburg of Austria would be willing to pay $1,500,000 dollars for his transfer. Despite that, he has other options: clubs from Switzerland, Austria, Greece, and Turkey are interested in him.

Oscar Ahumada: The defensive midfielder wants to switch teams, and his representative, Néstor Sívori, brought in an interesting offer from an Italian club. It would be worth approximately $2,000,000 dollars.

Diego Barrado: The right-wing will be loaned out to a Mexican club or Colon.

Juan Pablo Angel: The club will receive $1,000,000 dollars for his transfer from Aston Villa to the New York Red Bulls of the MLS.

Yes, if they sold the players they have a lot of money!They need it.I just discovered a Dutch soccer forum about Argentina soccer. One of the guys( he is living in Argentina and a fan of Godoy Cruz)was telling me, that among others River has some criminal people in the organisation and that with the political situation there it is not very safe there!
What do you think about that?
Did you see the video already?

It's your Aussie River fan here, sure we need money but we really need new players!

Who will they be? Which positions are we weakest in in your opinion?

In my opinion, our weakest position is the left-winger position. Matias Abelairas has been playing well there lately, but other than that, there aren't too many options.

We also need a playmaker, and maybe one of those fowards who always manages to put the ball past the net. Either way, I would prefer to see River use some youngsters from the lower divisions. Look at the past: Saviola, Aimar, D'Alessandro, Mascherano, Demichelis, etc. have all come from there. Plus, I hear we have some serious talent in our younger teams. I really like Domingo (defensive midfielder) and Sciorilli (playmaker), and I've also heard positive things of Buonanotte and Burzac (playmakers), as well as Cardozo (left-winger), Mussachio (defender), Oliva (defender), San Roman (defender), Rios (foward), among others.

I hope I answered you question.

Take care.
