Matias Abelairas: "Pitu" may well be on his way to Europe, after rumours state that Lazio are preparing a 5 million euro offer for the midfielder. If he doesn't leave with Carrizo to the Italian side in June, he still has chances of wearing a different jersey.
Cristian Villagra: Just when the left back began to play regularly well for River, it seems like he will move over to a team in the "Old Continent". Villarreal (Spain), Catania (Italy), and Olympiakos (Greece) would be just some of the many options for "Kity".
Alexis Sanchez: It is nothing new that the talented youngster has extremely small chances of remaining at the club after the Clausura. So what's the point of this note? Well, Independiente have expressed their interest in the Chilean and actually have a good chance of contracting him on loan after he leaves River. I could see it already: we face "el Rojo" in the Copa Sudamericana and are eliminated to the hands of Sanchez (ala D'Alessandro).
Radamel Falcao Garcia: The forward was just one step away from migrating to a different club in January, but he decided that he wanted to stay at least one more season. Now, the Colombian will probably not have a choice, and the offers will come flying in. Who will be his replacement?
Eduardo Tuzzio, Danilo Gerlo, Cristian Nasuti, Leonardo Ponzio, and Mauro Rosales: Their time in River seems to be coming close to an end. The only way these players are expected to stay is if a tempting offer does not arrive in the halls of the Monumental.
Pablo Aimar and Roberto Ayala: The two historic River players are currently playing for Real Zaragoza, who recently descended to the second division of the Spanish league. This is just one of the reasons why Jose Maria Aguilar has decided to go after the duo. Still, it seems impossible that they'll join our squad for next season due to economic reasons. Also, doesn't the same article mentioning their possible arrival appear on Ole/Clarin/La Nacion every six months?
Andres D'Alessandro: If the Aimar operation isn't successful, it is said that "los millonarios" will go after "el Cabezon". Just like the Aimar and Ayala, this transfer would be very complicated to achieve. The question is, if River are after him now, why didn't they put the money to buy him when they had a chance in January?
Ariel Ibagaza and Sebastian Leto: River will go after the two midfielders who are currently playing in Europe. It's pretty much the same story as always. I can see Aguilar already: "We couldn't bring you Aimar or D'Alessandro, but we did bring Ibagaza and Leto!".
Hilario Navarro: River would be looking for a replacement for Carrizo, and Racing's goalkeeper could be one of the main targets. The negative? His knee injury does not impress the dirigentes.
Gustavo Cabral: Diego Simeone has been pleased with the ex-Racing defender's performance this season, and has requested that the management transform his loan into a permament incorporation for River.
Dario Conca: The attacking midfielder played a key role for Fluminense today, who succesfully eliminated candidates Sao Paulo from the 2008 Copa Libertadores. He is on loan from River, and unless somebody purchases him, he should be returning in June. With so much talk of bringing in a new playmaker (Ibagaza, Aimar, D'Alessandro, etc.), could the solution to our problem be in our own hands?
Surprisingly enough, I kind of like this. Although we could be losing many great players (Falcao, Augusto Fernandez, Ponzio, Alexis Sanchez, Abelairas, etc.), we've been having a similar squad for the last few years now and things haven't too gone well. I believe that this could be the right time to clean out the squad and refresh the starting eleven with youngsters/new players.
