End of the show. Dario Benedetto will become a Boca Juniors player for the second time in his career in the coming days. Information confirmed by TyC Sports this Wednesday, which explains that the leaders of Marseille have finally given the green light to the operation. Currently on loan to Elche, he does not enter into the plans of the Spanish club who see no problem in letting him go.
The one who scored two goals and delivered an assist in fourteen La Liga games (including six as a starter only) will therefore return to the country. But hang in there, this is not a classic transfer … Cristian Bragarnik, player’s agent and owner of Elche, is thus in control and will place his pawns all over the place. The two players from Boca, Lisandro López and Walter Bou, will thus respectively go to Xolos de Tijuana and Defensa y Justicia, which will allow the Buenos Aires club to make the transfer of the Marseille striker easier.
For his part, Ivan Marcone, who is also part of the Bragarnik portfolio, is expected to leave Elche, probably towards Independiente. This money will allow the Spanish club to settle its debt of two million dollars with Boca, former club of Marcone, and it is with this money that OM will be compensated. The Phocéens will therefore recover an amount of around 1.8 million euros.
A small sum that will still allow the Marseillais to fill their pockets a little for the various operations to come during this winter transfer window. But it is clear that these less than 2 million euros obtained for a player who cost more than 10 million euros make the Argentinian a failure both in sport and in financial terms …
