Lanús striker is close to Verdão
Palmeiras returns to the field this Sunday, 12th, against Coritiba, away from home, to resume the lead of Serie A of the Brazilian Championship. Verdão needs the victory to overtake Corinthians, which is in the lead after beating Juventude, in São Paulo.
While Abel Ferreira defines the team that will go to the field, the board works to finalize the contraction of JJosé Manuel López, from Lanús. The 21-year-old striker from Argentina’s Lanús is expected to be signed for US$10 million (R$48 million).
According to the portal ThrowO Argentine should sign a contract with Palmeiras next weekend. According to the report, some details are still missing so that the final settlement can be signed between the parties.
José Manuel López is one of the promises of Argentine football. In Lanús’ professional team since 2020, the striker scored 22 goals in 59 matches with the team’s shirt. This season there are seven goals in 19 games.
Delay in getting it right doesn’t change Palmeiras’ plans
The delay in agreeing with José Manuel López does not change Palmeiras’ plans. As this is an international negotiation, the striker can only be registered by Verdão after the 18th of July, when the transfer window reopens. That is, alviverde can close the deal calmly, without prejudice to having the Argentine as an absence.
