The cranes move: the UC and Colo Colo define their first reinforcements for 2023

With just three dates left for the National Championship to end, the clubs have already begun to make their first moves for next season.

Colo Colo, for example, is one tie away from lowering the 33rd star, so he got down to work to strengthen his squad for 2023 with the mission of revalidating the title and competing in the Copa Libertadores. This, while waiting for what happens with his coach, Gustavo Quinteros, who has been linked to Independiente de Avellaneda in recent days.

Universidad Católica, meanwhile, will seek to strengthen itself to return to the top after an irregular season in which they came from surprisingly falling in the quarterfinals of the Copa Chile against the “U”, but in which they still dream of getting into international cups.

Thus, both clubs began to define their priorities. In the case of the albos, what they are clear about is that they need a new archer. Faced with the latent possibility that Brayan Cortés, of a high level, leaves the institution, for some time he has been around the Monumental the name of Gabriel Arias, goalkeeper of Racing de Argentina.

However, even when Cortés remains in La Ruca, the idea of ​​the Alba leadership is to strengthen that area, since both Omar Carabalí and Julio Fierro will leave the team. According to Cooperative RadioBlanco y Negro are working on the search for a goalkeeper who can “hurry up” Cortés, or stay with the position in the event that he leaves the institution.

For their part, the crusaders closely watch what is happening locally, and have already set their sights on one of their stars. We are talking about Matías Moya, a striker with a great season in Jaime García’s surprising Ñublense.

“Crusaders have already started working on reinforcements for next season. There is a strong interest in Matías Moya, a 24-year-old winger who belongs to Ñublense and who recently obtained Chilean nationality”, reported the journalist from ESPN Ricardo Shannon on his Twitter account.

In addition, it is public knowledge that those from the foothills have been having conversations for a long time with Eugenio Mena, left back of Racing Club and with a past at the University of Chile. They are the first two targeted by the still four-time champion.
