Almendra was on the agenda of several Argentine (Racing and Rosario Central) and Brazilian (Cruzeiro, Santos and Flamengo) clubs.Although Rayo’s option is the one that has most seduced this young talent, who went through the lower categories of Lanús and Independiente, but He came to Boca with only 10 years. He trained there and, little by little, he went through stages until he made his debut with the first team in April 2018. The franjirrojos will do so with a footballer who, as a child, they compared to Riquelme.

The Argentina U-20 captain shone during the 2019 World Cup and Boca rejected the interest of several greats from Spain, Italy, England and Portugal. He did not want to part with an asset with a huge projection. However, the pandemic, some family problems, an injury to his right ankle… They made him consider giving up football, but the player decided to continue. His disagreements with Battaglia did not prevent the Argentine club from proposing the renewal, but his destiny points to a new team and country. The end of the story goes through the beginning of his stage in Vallecas. In the suitcase he carries his two Super Leagues, a Super Cup, a League Cup, an Argentine Cup and many challenges.
