One of Sebastián Beccacece’s priorities for next season is to hire a central defender to reinforce the squad. Without going any further, in the last hours a candidate appeared that was not in anyone’s plans.

According to what Hernán Feler told on TNT Sports, the Academy asked for conditions for Lautaro Giannetti, one of the great figures of Vélez. The 26-year-old defender had good performances in recent years and appeared on the radar of several major clubs.

However, there is an issue that can complicate Racing in this negotiation: Giannetti is valued between 6 and 7 million dollars, a figure that is difficult to pay nowadays in Argentine soccer.

It will be necessary to see if from the Avellaneda club they try to negotiate with the Fortín as they did recently by the pass of Ricardo Centurión… Is there a player exchange for Giannetti?

In some places it was said that Racing made a formal offer for 50% of the pass, but for now there is nothing officially.
