Transfer News: June 7th

Juan Pablo Carrizo: River's dirigentes an Carrizo's representative (Pablo Sabbag) will get together today to discuss Lazio's offer for the goalkeeper.

Nelson Rivas: Edited: The Colombian defender resigned his contract with River and surprisingly ended up training with Inter of Italy. His representative claimed that it was only going to be temporary, until he found a new club, but "Tyson" signed his contract with Italian giants today!

Federico Lussenhoff: The defender still has not signed his new loan. He is expected to do so soon, but if he doesn't, River will be left with few players in his position (Rivas left, Talamonti won't return from his loan, Gerlo has high chances of leaving, etc.) Edit: "El Colorado" signed his new loan contract last night.

Ernesto Farías: Since he could not reach an agreement regarding his contract with Lorient of France, he will be signing with Toluca. The Mexican club will put in $4,000,000 dollars for his transfer, leaving 2 million for River.

Federico Higuaín: Estudiantes still want him (River requested $2,000,000 dollars). Abadie, their President, will visit "el Monumental" today to discuss this matter. Reggina of Italy also want him. Jose Maria Aguilar, meanwhile, asked Passarella to give him a shot with River's jersey in our coming pre-season friendlies: he will be traveling to Korea to participate in the Peace Cup.

Diego Galván: Edit: River have finalized his transfer to Estudiantes for $900,000 dollars for 50% of the transfer.

Danilo Gerlo: Olympiakos of Greece is willing to pay $1,500,000 dollars for him. We own 50% of the defender.

Diego Barrado: Racing Club and Olimpo are interested in the midfielder (pictured). He is not needed/wanted in River, so his chances of leaving on loan once again are high.

Federico Domínguez: Julio Comparada, Presidente of Independiente, visited our stadium today to inquire about the defender.

Matías Oyola: Independiente have bought the left-wing for $370,000 dollars.

Ricardo Villalba: The defender is expected to leave to a Chilean team.

In other news, Argentina have been doing well in the Copa America (4-1 vs. USA, 4-2 vs. Colombia, 1-0 vs. Paraguay), with Crespo (2) and Aimar having scored in the first game, Crespo in the second one, and Mascherano in the third match. Overall, the team is playing great, and so are the ex-River Plate players.

Hey loes! Unfortunately, I think I will miss this whole tournament: I can't seem to find a channel that will show the match (neither live or tape delayed). I guess this will mean that I will only post game previews. I might post some short post game reviews, but they will be missing the personal opinions since I won't be able to watch the game. Maybe you should stop by after the games and leave your word!

Thanks for stopping by,
