Coach Martín Demichelis has admitted that the club is unlikely to retain Nicolás De La Cruz in 2024, due to a sales commitment. The player is in the sights of Flamengo, who is willing to pay a fine of 16 million dollars (approximately 78.9 million reals).
“With Nico there is a sales commitment and whoever comes will definitely take it. I hope they don’t come looking for him, but I doubt it. They will definitely come looking for him”, admitted Demichelis, after the penalty defeat against Rosario Centrale (the match was 0-0 in regulation time).
The Uruguayan player is an old desire of the Rubro-Negro, who failed to sign him in mid-2023. But without giving up, the board is betting on his arrival at the beginning of 2024. River Plate is still trying to convince De La Cruz to stay .
With a contract until December 2025 with the River Plate team, where he has played since 2017, De La Cruz wants to change and was interested in Flamengo’s proposal. The Rossoneri management and the player’s agents remain in contact and the expectation is that the agreement will come to fruition.
