TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Reports
AS reports that Inter seek to make “Nacho,” an all-rounder capable of incisive contributions in both attack and defense, one of their Designated Players.
Meanwhile, his time as a teammate of Guillermo Barros Schelotto at Gimnasia La Plata has fueled talk of a reunion in LA, where GBS is preparing for his second season in charge of the Galaxy. But Fernandez’s agent has stated that he’s had no contact with the SoCal side:
Nacho Fernandez agent on a River Plate’s supporters show: “we heard about those rumors linking him to #LAGalaxy true is that GBS knows Nacho very well (teammates in Gimnasia) BUT nobody from that team had reach out to us. So there is nothing” @kbaxter11 @jguesman @RobAbramowitz— John E. Rojas (@jrojasa75) December 3, 2019
The AS report suggests that River and Fernandez recognize that given his age, this could be the last chance for player and club alike to cash in with a big transfer move, but that the club’s other moves in the market, or lack thereof, may influence the decision-making process.
AS also claims that River manager Marcelo Gallardo was Miami’s top target for their still-vacant head coaching post, but that the two sides could not reach an agreement, which matches up with similar reports last week on the expansion club's coaching search.
