Independiente is the only Primera club that has not yet been strengthened in this transfer market. And, to top it all, this Thursday Eduardo Domínguez learned that he was left without the team’s captain and scorer: Silvio Romero will continue his career at Fortaleza in Brazil.

From the 33-year-old forward’s environment they confirmed to Clarion that his departure is a fact. And the Northern Brazilian club has already activated ingenious clues on its networks to announce the good news to its torcedores.

Romero was acquired for $ 4 million by the Diablo to America from Mexico. He had serious problems to finish paying his token, but he finally did. Not so with Cecilio Domínguez’s pass, by which the Mexican entity made a new claim whose recent ruling was once again favorable to America for a total amount of $ 5,550,000.
The Chino leaves Independiente with very good numbers personally: in total he scored 51 goals in 128 games. One of those goals was the one he did in Japan in 2018 to win the Suruga Bank.
Ceará was another team interested in him, but he redirected his sights towards Emmanuel gigliotti, who is in Mexico with the pass in his possession. Fortaleza has been negotiating for Romero for a week and this Thursday he completed his arrival.
