Colombian outlet Antena 2 today does a good job reminding us of a transfer rumour which has been forgotten in the past couple of months.
Back in March, several reports said Cardiff City were close to finding an agreement to sign the Junior Barranquilla winger Luís Diaz.
At that time, even the player confirmed there was an agreement between the clubs for the move, although he didn’t have a deal with the Premier League side yet.
Now Antena 2 lists a few players who should be leaving Junior Barranquilla this summer, and Luis Diaz is one of them. It’s said he has the opportunity of playing in Argentina or for Cardiff City, since these were the first offers he got.
Since Diaz has already left his club to play the Copa America for Colombia, it’s likely that he won’t even return to Junior Barranquilla.
Now we wonder about the reason the story has disappeared lately. Perhaps Cardiff City’s relegation to the Championship had a lot to do with it.
