Independent, you urgently need to obtain economic resources and from anywhere to pay your multiple debts. And the need has led the club to put grandmother’s jewels in the window. Silvio Romero, captain and scorer of the team, went to Fortaleza in exchange for a small fee. And Alan Velasco, a very important footballer due to his capacity for individual imbalance, could leave Avellaneda next week.
FC Dallas, a team that plays in Major League Soccer, offered 5.5 million dollars for 90% of the 19-year-old footballer’s pass. The proposal also includes an extra 1.5 million in bonuses that the Red could charge if the soccer player meets certain objectives in the United States, such as playing a certain number of games, converting a certain number of goals and becoming champion.
Velasco is not desperate to leave Independiente, but the institution’s urgencies could push him towards the exit. “I would like to go through the front door. First I want to be champion in Argentina”, commented the player at the end of last year.
The truth is that the amount offered by the Americans seduces the directors of the Red, who are looking for dollars to lift five inhibitions that fall on the club and that prevent incorporating, something that is fundamental, since after the departure of Romero in the squad there are no weight forwards and in that position there were only four youth left who did not convert or a goal in Independent.

This is how Independent will proceed
What will be the position of Independiente before this proposal? The leaders evaluate the steps to follow and agreed to take time until Monday to analyze how to proceed.
They consider that the number is good, but it is more likely that they will demand an additional 3 million dollars to try to reach a middle ground and see how far the Americans are willing to stretch. The idea is to see if they can get a few more dollars for the jewel. Eduardo Domínguez is excited about promoting it, but there are concrete chances that it will open its wings.
