Another Argentine veteran at the door of the Celtic team

After the departure of Matthias Dituro Y Ruben Blancothe need for Celtic RC was the urgent hiring of at least one goalie. The Celtista sports management had several names on the agenda, but Mr. Eduardo Coudet had already chosen one that might not be approved by the board of directors, due to his age.

Well, that’s how it was, since when the Argentine coach put the name of Agustin Marchesin at the table, the sports and general direction of the Galician painting he disagreed. However, after several conversations, Carlos Mourino authorized the operation and in the next few hours the veteran goalkeeper could be arriving in Vigo.

Agustín Marchesín plays for Porto, but is a substitute for Diogo Costa.

Agustín Marchesín, the goalkeeper that Coudet wants at RC Celta

The 34-year-old Argentine goalkeeper (one less than Dituro) has played for Porto since 2019, although in the last season he was more on the bench than in goal. Marchesín is the substitute for Diogo Costa, and the gaucho wants to change that story, although it is quite difficult with the level and performance of the Portuguese.

Given this, the best option for the South American is to go out with the aim of adding minutes in this last stretch of his professional career. The Celtist set is the best option from him for several reasons. One of them is to get to one of the leagues where he always dreamed of playing. The second is that Marchesín knows that Coudet is going to give him many minutes since the coach prefers veteran and experienced goalkeepers. Everything is served so that the former America reaches Balaídos.

RC Celta would not pay more than 2 kilos for the Argentine goalkeeper in Porto

Agustín Marchesín’s contract with the Dragon club only has one year left on his contract, and the goalkeeper wants to get out of there. Reasons enough for Celta not to put more than two million euros on the table for his transfer. Even the Celtic sports management contemplates the possibility that the Argentine be granted the letter of freedom, since it is a high salary that he has in Portugal.

Marchesín’s will to come to Vigo is a fact. Now what remains is to agree on the way in which Celta will pay for his signing. Due to his remaining year of contract, a transfer is not contemplated by Porto, who will look for a way to make money in any way, but in this summer market.
