Argentina: Update

The most significant transfers of the last week (unmentioned before):

Boca Juniors
River Plate lost again - Marcelo Carrusca will be playing for the club from Boca. Besides, Victor Ormazabal from Spanish Pontevedra and bright Colombian Fabian Vargas from Brazilian Internacional return to Boca too. Aldo Bobadilla moved to Turkish Trabzonspor.

The club is too passive during the pretemporada. The losses are huge, while among the serious acquisitions there was only Galvan, who already managed to get injured. Both Colombians left the team: Mauricio Casierra went home to Once Caldas, and Jossimar Mosquera moved to Arsenal Sarandi.

Gimnasia La Plata
Ex-keeper of Newells, Roma and Colo Colo, Sebastian Cejas, returned finally home.

Very weak inflow to this club too. In addition to previous losses, a good left wing Juan Eluchans went to French Caen.

One of Argentina's best defensemen in last decade, Paraguayan Celso Esquivel returned to San Lorenzo, where he played his best games.

River Plate
Catastrofically sinking River lost during the break not only one main keeper, but both of them: as it turned out, German Lux went to Europe too - to Spanish Mallorca.

Rosario Central
So, London Arsenal did not manage to obtain Angel di Maria. The young wonder has signed with unprecedently active on football market Portuguese Benfica. Andres Diaz went there too. Finally old Roberto Acuña returned home to Paraguayan Olimpia. German Alemanno for some reasons was sent to Quilmes. Among the newcomers the only one to impress has been Arzuaga.

San Lorenzo
...while the champion has fortified as a true champion. First, looks like the departure of Lavezzi is compensated - marvelous Daniel Bilos, who returned from Mexican America, will be playing in his place. Celso Esquivel, as it has been already said, returned to the club too. As did German Herrera (Real Sociedad) and Walter Montillo (Morelia). About the rest of loud signings we already informed. Given that in club there are new defensemen Gaston Aguirre and Esquivel, the move of Jonatan Bottinelli is logically expected.
