San Lorenzo: Federico Gattoni does not fix and could sign with Seville


A few days after the start of the Professional League, San Lorenzo he could lose his captain Federico Gattoni, whom they locate close to signing for Sevilla in Spain in the midst of the conflict over the extension of his contract at the Boedo club. The Seville newspaper published that the Andalusian entity “after considering different options for the last reinforcement in the defense, has decided on another option for the future and the current defender from San Lorenzo can become the next signing”.

Gattoni, 23, is in conflict with the leadership of San Lorenzo over the renewal of the bond that expires on June 30. Negotiations with his representative Marcelo Lombilla, of old conflicts with the Barcelona leadership, They haven’t found a meeting point for seven months. The difference that locks the agreement lies in the termination clause to execute the eventual exit.

Lombilla presses so that this amount is not too high in order to facilitate a sale in the future, but in San Lorenzo they are not willing to lose the player for less than their real value, regardless of the risk involved in freedom of action from July 1st. This situation is also a determining factor for the Boedo club, since a potential buyer knows that starting in the second half of this year he could negotiate directly with the player and save money from economic rights.

In the middle of the preseason, Gattoni traveled to Italy to close the process of his European citizenship, a favorable aspect for his sporting future. The player publicly declared his desire to resolve the situation with San Lorenzo and DT Rubén Insúa declared his confidence in the resolution more than once. But the signature for the renewal does not arrive and it is not ruled out that the player is temporarily removed from the squad until the case is resolved.

Regarding the renewal of my contract, I trust that my trusted people will solve the issue in the best way. I love the club and the people of San Lorenzo” Gattoni said on Saturday after the 1-0 defeat against Danubio in Montevideo. In case of not signing, the defender risks staying a semester without playing until he is released and San Lorenzo would thus lose its captain before its debut in the championship, next Saturday from 5:00 p.m. against Arsenal at the Nuevo Gasómetro.
