The captain of San Lorenzo, Federico Gattoni, in conflict over the renewal of his contract, did not show up for training this Monday to the surprise of everyone in Boedo, including the leaders, who are evaluating a disciplinary measure given that the player traveled to Europe and without authorization to process their citizenship.
In Boedo they do not know if the defender flew to Italy for the second time this year to finish the procedures for his European citizenship, an important requirement in favor of a transfer to football on the Old Continent, whose pass book will close precisely this Tuesday.
Gattoni, 23, had already traveled to Italy during the preseason held in Uruguay, but with the approval of the leaders -although this information was initially hidden- who seek to extend the contract with an expiration date of June 30.
Spokesmen for San Lorenzo assured that the player’s representative, Marcelo Lombilla, never reported the possibility of a new trip during the talks he had with the leaders last weekend.
The central marker was the starter and bearer of the captain’s ribbon in Saturday’s 1-0 victory against Arsenal, for the first date of the Professional League. And the day before the match, the coach Rubén Darío Insúa announced that Gattoni had agreed to the terms of the extension of his relationship and that he would sign it in the following days, without prejudice to accepting an offer from abroad if it materialized before January 31. .
Before Insúa’s statement, the leadership of San Lorenzo was analyzing separating the footballer from the squad until the signing of his new contract for which he has been negotiating since last year and which, if he does not sign, will allow him to leave the club as an agent Free from July 1.
The footballer appears on the radar of Jorge Sampaoli’s Sevilla, which requires the validity of his community passport so as not to occupy a foreign position. The Spanish club has already offered the meager figure of one and a half million dollars for 100% of the central defender’s pass, so he would leave Boedo due to the clause and San Lorenzo would not have any percentage left thinking about a possible sale in the future. . In any case, from the leadership of the afflicted Cuervo they still did not react to the escape of the captain.
