Gonzalo Montiel has established himself as the best right-back in South America in the last edition of the Copa Conmebol Libertadores, despite the elimination of River Plate in the hands of Palmeiras in the semifinals of the competition. The Argentine is a sensational talent and one of the players that Marcelo Gallardo has trained who has shown the best level in recent years. A differential talent.
For that reason, and taking into account the problems that exist worldwide to take out differential quality right backs, several teams in Europe have knocked on River Plate’s door with the intention of closing their incorporation into this transfer market, taking into account that the contract with the millionaire team ends in the summer and that Marcelo Gallardo has accepted that he will not stop any player if his decision is to leave the club.
Gonzalo Montiel had already caught the attention of several teams in recent transfer markets. West Ham United, Valencia CF, Sevilla FC, Real Betis Balompié, Inter Milan and Juventus from Turin showed interest in him but did not finish anything.
But, this time, everything seems to indicate that nothing will keep Montiel in the Monumental de Núñez and that his departure is imminent.
According to the newspaper Olé, there are three teams that are interested in signing the Argentine right-back and that would be fighting to close his signing in this same transfer market, which would be an objective of Montiel who wants to leave money to the club that saw him grow as a player .
The three teams that sound the most to sign Montiel
-Olympic Lyon: The French team are having a great season in Ligue 1 and want new reinforcements to stay on top.
-AS Roma: Those of the Italian capital are showing an improvement in the past season and want Montiel to continue growing at the project level.
–Villarreal: Unai Emery’s team intends to add an offensive right-back that can compensate for that band and the Argentine seems a viable option. Montiel was already linked at the time by various La Liga teams such as Sevilla, Betis and Valencia.
