Before agreeing with Nathan Santos, Santos sought to hire Lucas Blondel, from Tigre, from Argentina. The deal with the Argentine club had advanced, with Tigre accepting the conditions proposed by Santos. Peixe offered an amount immediately and the rest of the amount in installments from the beginning of next year.
However, the Argentines warned that they wanted a higher price. Santos adopted the stance of not entering an “auction” for Blondel and understood that it did everything it could to sign the player.
According to the football executive of Santos, Newton Drummond, the economic crisis experienced by Argentina was one of the factors that complicated the negotiation for both the Tigre player and the midfielder Franco Cristaldo, from Huracán.
The next reinforcement to be announced by Santos should be midfielder Luan, from Corinthians. Peixe got all the details of the 29-year-old player’s signing in the last few days. The player arrives at the club on loan free of charge until the end of the Brazilian Championship.
