Tigres de México plan to sign Santos Borré: Eintracht Frankfurt listens to offers | Colombians Abroad
The future of Rafael Santos Borré is a real headache: he arrived at Eintracht Frankfurt for free and in his happy landing they gave him a Europa League, but then everything collapsed and today the parties know that the best thing is to separate.
The Colombian was directly affected by the arrival of Kolo Muani, who settled in the headline and no longer gave space to anyone else, a situation that cornered the Barranquillero to the point of forcing him to look for a club to go out and earn some regularity. and competition.
The problem is that Frankfurt suddenly found themselves with a great deal and they don’t intend to lose it: they have already ruled out a juicy offer of 10 million dollars and they will not speak to anyone for less than 15 million.
And they know that in Mexico, the most probable destination of the attacker, who would have already given his approval and now is just waiting, while he has just scored a goal in the few minutes he was given this Saturday in the friendly against Leipizg (4-2 ), that business advances and the ordeal ends.
The plan of Tigres de México, the team that seems determined to do everything for him, is clear: “Tigres launched an offer for Rafael Santos Borré. The club had a formal approach for the 27-year-old striker from Eintracht Frankfurt, who does not see a bad coming to Mexico. The first offer was rejected by the Germans, but they are waiting for the transfer of the Colombian,” said journalist Jorge Rosales.
So the plan is to wait and strike back: an approximation has already been made to scare away any other candidate (10 million produce that effect) and give the Germans the signal that they are in a position to raise the offer in this same winter market, but They need a bit of flexibility on the final price. The strategy is common and usually ends, as Rosales announces, in a good negotiation.
For Frankfurt it is a round deal as a result of the courage to have gone for him after his good final season at River Plate. For the Mexican club, he is a guaranteed striker, with international contact and experience as a Copa Libertadores champion. For the player it is the end of a good dream but also the way out of a tedious situation that would also allow him to fight, from regularity, for the position in the Colombian National Team. Everyone wins, but everyone must give in.
