Colo Colo will live this Wednesday a key day in the negotiations to stay with Leandro Benegas, according to Sports in Agriculture, since the albos prepare a counteroffer for the Independiente striker.
Colo Colo is still looking to add his first reinforcement for this transfer window, with the Copa Chile already started and the Copa Sudamericana just around the corner, and one of the names that attracts attention in Macul is Leandro Benegas.
The albos have already offered for the player, as he himself acknowledged, although the numbers presented by the Cacique failed to convince. But the Cacique has not yet given up the fight to keep the goals of the striker who now shines in Independiente.
The Sports in Agriculture journalist, Cristián Alvarado, announced that this Wednesday will be a key day in the negotiations with the player, since Colo Colo is preparing a counteroffer. Alvarado assured that Benegas wants to return to Chile and is attracted by the possibility of wearing the alba shirt.
“The player is seduced by the Cacique and would like to return to Chile. And the other thing: today Colo Colo attacks Leandro Benegas again. Today is a key day. Probably a counteroffer is what Black and White will do to see if he is close, if Independiente finally accepts Colo Colo’s proposal,” Alvarado assured.
“I’m going to be very honest with you, a year ago I would never have thought that Leandro Benegas was a reinforcement for Colo Colo, because of what he has played and performed in local football. And today he is a player who comes to a team armed with better players. and stands out. He is the offensive stamp of Independiente”, commented Patricio Yáñez before the news. “Although I do not understand the figure of Benegas, I find it hard to believe that a player who is being valued in Argentine soccer wants to come,” he also reflected.
Waiting for an answer, Colo Colo must focus on the closest challenge. The albos face Deportes Temuco this Thursday for the Chile Cup with the obligation to win, since the key was left open after having obtained a goalless draw at the Monumental Stadium.
