The end of November is approaching and soon Universidad de Chile will be back to training with a view to the 2023 season, since the start of the preseason is scheduled for December 8. The blues took a big step with the definition of Mauricio Pellegrino as the new coach and now they will intensify efforts to reconfigure the squad. Follow all the news from Universidad de Chile in the current transfer market, updated until today, Tuesday November 29.
Who are the reinforcements that appear?
After the agreement with Pellegrino, the blue box would be one step away from making two new additions. Is about Federico Mateos and Nicolás Guerra, who were good figures in the great campaign that led Ñublense to qualify for the group stage of the next Copa Libertadores.
Mateos was the captain and soccer leader of the chillanejos in 2022. He ended up contracting with the runner-up team, after Colo Colo, and his name has been linked to Universidad Católica. He can act in all three midfield functions, as a central, mixed or attacking midfielder, and he started 26 National Championship games with a record of three goals.
Guerra, for his part, is somewhat surprising. In 2021 he came to Ñublense from the U on loan and later the Chillán team acquired his pass. Now, however, he would have another chance to consolidate himself in the student body, after completing the entire training process in the club.

Until now, the only confirmed reinforcement is Juan Pablo Gomez, former right-back from Curicó in 2022. Now, with the arrival of Pellegrino, the list will grow. Another that you have the possibility of reaching is Ronald de la Fuente, also members of the curicano establishment in the previous season. However, the cast of Maule demands the payment of the exit clause of the left side.
At the same time, a special situation would be living the youth Lucas Assadi and Darío Osorio, following the arrival of the Argentine DT. Pellegrino would have asked for the continuity of the offensive midfielders. Both are key to the new project.

Currently, the list of players who are not still at the club is led by Junior Fernandes and Alvaro Brun. It is probable, however, that departures will increase with Pablo Aránguiz, Jeisson Vargas and Ronnie Fernández, who are not guaranteed continuity. To these one could also add Philip Seymour, since the midfielder negotiates to terminate the contract.
