River Plate’s president on Balanta

Rodolfo D’Onofrio, the president of River Plate, admitted today while speaking to radio show America & Closs, that it will be difficult to hold onto Éder Álvarez Balanta this summer, after the player has requested to go to Europe.

“Balanta and Lanzini: they are the only two who have been requested. For them, we’ve received informal proposals and Balanta has asked (me) if he can go to Europe and play. I’m not worried by the face they may be sold, the market in Europe is just beginning.”
