The youth still does not appear for training because he wants a transfer.
Boca’s conflict with Agustín Almendra is still open. The 20-year-old youth, who knew how to be one of the great hopes of the club’s quarry, he does not show up to train since the practices were resumed after the stop by the coronavirus pandemic.
The midfielder was financially sanctioned and now a new notice has been sent asking him to appear at the Ezeiza Training Center.
Even before sanctions were applied, there were players on the squad who contacted Almendra, such as Carlos Tevez, to try to change his position, but they did not succeed. The communications also covered the Soccer Council, some leaders and even their representative, but the player’s decision does not change: he doesn’t want to play in Boca anymore.
It all started in January 2020, before the world was revolutionized by the pandemic. Almendra contacted Juan Román Riquelme and the Soccer Council to report that I did not want to continue being part of Boca and at the same time received polls from Miami Inter, they did not prosper.
Later, Almendra was infected with Covid-19 and, when the moment came when he was discharged and he was summoned to train, he did not show up.
Almond has contract valid until June 2023 and its termination clause is 30 million dollars.
Although his departure could have been to Inter Miami, Boca did not receive any offer for the player that would satisfy him, and the transfer market closes this Thursday, therefore it would already be ruled out that his future is in MLS .
Students of La Plata had also been interested, who discarded it as a reinforcement due to the high amount of the termination clause. Talleres de Córdoba, which until this Wednesday was itching to add xeneize to the steering wheel, ruled it out due to the current situation and the conflict with Boca.
