Follow all the news from Universidad de Chile in the current transfer market, updated until today, Sunday in December. In Azul Azul they debate about the ideal name to reinforce the defense.
Reinforcements U. de Chile 2023: registrations and who could arrive
The main novelty this week had been the possible arrival of Matías Zaldivia at the CDA. The central defender did not renew his contract in Colo Colo. However, according to ESPN, the U is already taking steps to hire Matías Catalán, defender and right back of Chilean origin who belongs to Talleres de Córdoba.
Catalán was also an option in Colo Colo, but finally the Blanco y Negro board leaned towards the incorporation of Ramiro González, who signed his bond this week.
The problem of the U with Catalan is the cost of the operation. The central defender’s pass was recently acquired by the Cordoba team, after a good season in Argentine soccer. If he manages to leave the club, it will be one for a sum that raises doubts in the CDA.
While waiting to be defined, the U has already ensured the incorporation of Juan Pablo Gomezformer side of Curicó, and DT Mauricio Pellegrino. He is also very close to signing Federico Mateos, former captain of Ñublense, and of Leandro Fernandez, striker for Independiente de Avellaneda. Only the officialization of both signings would be missing.
The former coach of Velez will also be able to count on the homegrown players Jeisson Fuentealba and Simón Contreras. The midfielder was on loan at La Serena in 2022 and is a good figure in the Red Sub 20 that will play the next South American in the category. The attacker went through the University of Concepción.
Withdrawals U. de Chile 2023: who is leaving
The club’s first two outings were Junior Fernandes and Álvaro Brun, who left when the season ended. The players Pablo Aránguiz, Ronnie Fernández, Jeisson Vargas and Felipe Seymour could join, although it has not yet been decided. If that doesn’t happen sooner, everyone must report to the CDA during the next week, when the squad returns to training.
Lucas Assadi and Dario Osorio, meanwhile, they are constantly polled from abroad. However, they are part of the group of players that Pellegrino will have when he returns to practice, although the DT will have to wait a while to see them directly in action. The juniors will play the South American Sub 20 in Colombia with the Red.
