Cabral has actually already began his career with the Riverplatenses. After finalizing the transaction for $1,500,000 for 50% of the transfer, the now ex-Racing player passed by the Monumental and signed his new contract. Despite have only 22 years of age, he has plenty of experience: he debuted for "la academia" when he was 18, and since then has racked up an impressive 110+ matches in Primera. But that wasn't his only accomplishment: in 2005, he integrated the Argentine U-20 National Team squad (who later went on to win the Youth World Cup that year), a team that was completely free of River players. Gustavo is an interesting prospect for the future for both River and Argentina, so his time with "los millonarios" could be vital to the remainder of his career.
While Gustavo was in Nunez finalizing the last details on his compact, Rodrigo Archubi was in Piraeus, Greece, anxiously waiting for a new chapter in River's transfer book. His loan with Olympiakos wasn't as successful as expected, yet River are still highly interested in incorporating the ex-Lanus player to the squad. In fact, a final agreement is close to being reached, since the businessman Pinas Zavahi will invest on the left-winger and ultimately loan him to "los millonarios"
As for other transfers, the always-wanted Andres D'Alessandro continues on expressing his desire to return. His lack of minutes in Zaragoza, combined with his enthusiasm of a possible six month loan, make the rumours of a transfer to River come to life. Chances remain slim, though why not dream?
