Argentine outlet El Intransigente today features an interesting piece on the future of Southampton striker Guido Carrillo.
They report that Boca Juniors are interested in signing the 29-year-old this summer, and there’s apparently a positive scenario for the transfer to happen.
Carrillo is having a loan spell at Spanish side Leganés. It’s claimed he’s only staying at the La Liga side if they sign him permanently, which is ‘unlikely’ for now.
It’s also said that once he returns to England at the end of the season, Southampton ‘do not count on him’. And that’s what opens doors for Boca Juniors to make an attempt.
El Intransigente claim that Boca Juniors will make an offer to get Carrilo on a one-and-a-half-year loan spell. In recent interviews, the striker claimed he’d like to play for the La Bombonera side, so that’s an extra factor for them to be confident about the signing.
What the report forgets to mention is that Carrillo’s contract with Southampton expires in June 2021. So for Boca Juniors to get him until December 2022, he’d have to renew his contract with the Premier League side.
