Inter tries to hire Quintero, formerly of River Plate, a request from the player’s agents scares, but a journalist insists that Inter is willing to pay.
Internacional is seeking reinforcements for the team led by coach Mano Menezes for the 2023 season, the year in which it will face four competitions. In addition to the Campeonato Gaúcho, Brasileirão and Copa do Brasil, Inter will also compete in the Copa Libertadores da América, as it was left out of the 2022 edition.
The name of the Colombian Juan Quintero, 29 years old, was offered to Internacional, which welcomes the signing of the player who is free on the market. Last season, the midfielder played for River Plate on loan from Shenzhen, in China. Quintero did not reach an agreement with the Argentine club for a renewal and had his bond with the Chinese terminated.
Inter faces strong competition from Flamengo, a club that Quintero was also offered. The cariocas took a while to start the negotiations, since they expected the ok from the new coach Vítor Pereira to continue with the negotiations.
However, the news is that Rubro-Negro has already made an offer with the player and now the parties are talking in search of a deal. According to information provided by journalist Vágner Martins, Quintero asked Flamengo for US$8 million for a three-year contract. Which would cost Cariocas something around 1.2 million reais per month.
Inter is also trying to bring the player to Rio Grande do Sul, the amount of more than 1 million reais per month can be scary, however, it is worth remembering that the club that hires Quintero will not need to pay anything to any other team, just gloves and salary to the player.
Also according to journalist Jorge Dias do footballerInter does not see problems in the amounts charged by the athlete and has already signaled positively for his hiring.
Internacional tries to sign Gustavo Cuéllar
Internacional has as a priority the hiring of a defensive midfielder to reinforce the sector of the team commanded by Mano Menezes. The search has intensified since the last month after the certainty that the holder Gabriel will only return to the lawns in the second half of this year and after the failed negotiation with Lucas Romero.
Inter’s management probes three players in the ball market, Gregore, who defends Inter Miami, from Major League Soccer, from the United States, Gabriel Baralhas, who was one of the highlights of Atlético-GO last season and Gustavo Cuéllar, who plays by Al-Hilal, from Saudi Arabia.
The news of Internacional’s interest in Cuéllar stirred fans on social networks, who were excited about the possibility of the Colombian defending Clube do Povo. Fans have already invaded the player’s profiles on social networks with comments from “Come to Inter”.
The information is that the management presented a project that pleased the athlete, who sees playing in Beira-Rio with good eyes. However, Al-Hilal’s problems with FIFA stop the deal. The Arabs are punished with a transferban, which prohibits them from hiring. The legal department tries to overturn the decision, if they succeed, they would agree to negotiate Cuéllar.
