English version follows

Inter Miami CF, que empezará a competir en la MLS a partir del año que viene, estaba dispuesto a poner 20 millones de dólares pero el mediocampista prefiere irse a Europa.

Miami, Fla. (miercoles, 4 de septiembre de 2019) – Kenneth Russo

Al parecer, David Beckam parece tener una devoción por los jugadores argentinos. Esto lo está demostrando a partir de la búsqueda de jugadores jóvenes para su equipo de la MLS, el Inter Miami.

El equipo del exjugador inglés comenzará a participar de la MLS el próximo año y es por eso que se está armando para competir de la misma manera contra cualquiera de los equipos que están jugando en la actualidad.

En este caso, los dirigentes del club estaban dispuestos a desembolsar 20 millones de dólares por Exequiel Palacios, el juvenil de River Plate. El club se interesó mucho por la oferta debido a la importante suma que se ofreció. Sin embargo, el propio Palacios dijo que no estaba interesado en irse a jugar a Estados Unidos y dejó en claro que su futuro si no es en River será en el fútbol europeo.

El ascenso de Exequiel Palacios al estrellato ha sido excelente. El mediocampista se desplaza por todo el campo con sus carreras rápidas y su presión implacable. No es de extrañar que los clubes más grandes de Europa estén luchando para ficharlo. Los exploradores se refieren a él como una perspectiva increíble.

El Real Madrid es uno de los clubes que ya ha hablado con River sobre Palacios. Los Blancos han estado aprovechando el mercado sudamericano recientemente para atraer a algunas de las mejores estrellas jóvenes del continente.

Sin embargo, la plantilla actual lleva bien el nombre del equipo, con cuatro jugadores que llegarán de Argentina, Venezuela y Canadá. Pero por lo memento, Beckham no podrá sumar un tercer jugador argentino a los dos que ya forman parte del equipo: Matías Pellegrini, ex-Estudiantes de La Plata y Julián Carranza, ex-Club Atlético Banfield fueron los dos primeros refuerzos comprados por Internacional de la MLS. Sin duda, hay otros que decirán “sí”.


Exequiel Palacios Says “No” To Inter Miami. No Doubt, There Will Be Others Who Say “Yes.”

Inter Miami CF, which begins play in MLS next season, was prepared to spend $20 million USD, but the midfielder prefers to go to Europe.

It would seem that David Beckham has a devotion for Argentine players, as demonstrated by the search for young players for his club, Inter Miami. The former player’s team will begin to participate in MLS next season, and is arming itself to compete with any of the teams that play in the league at present.

In this case, the directors of the club were prepared to let go of $20 Million USD for Exequiel Palacios, the River Plate youth player. River was very interested in the offer due to the large sum that it would bring the club. Nevertheless, it was Palacios himself who was not interested in going to play in the United States. He made it very clear that if his future is not at River Plate then it will be in European football.

Exequiel Palacios’s rise to stardom has been excellent. The midfielder travels across the field with his fast runs and his relentless pressure. No wonder the biggest clubs in Europe are struggling to sign him. Scouts refer to him as an incredible prospect.

Real Madrid is one of the clubs that has spoken with River over Palacios. Los Blancos have been taking a long look at the South American market recently in order to attract some of the best young stars from the continent.

Nevertheless, the current roster of Inter Miami carries the name of the team well, with four players who will arrive from Argentina, Venezuela and Canada. However, at least for the moment, Beckham will not be able to add a third Argentine player to the two who already are on the roster: Matías Pellegrini, formerly of Estudiantes de La Plata and Julián Carranza, ex-Club Atlético Banfield were the first two players purchased by Internacional of MLS. Without a doubt, there will be others who say “yes.”

Pellegrini, quien este martes entrenó a la par de sus compañeros en el Country Club de City Bell, comenzará a trabajar en su nuevo club en enero de 2020.

COMMUNICATION FROM THE CLUB ABOUT PELLEGRINI

Estudiantes de La Plata has learned that its player, Matías Pellegrini, successfully passed the medical check-up at Inter Miami CF and has already returned to the country, where he was placed under the command of Gabriel Milito’s coaching staff for the start of the Super League.

The player traveled to the United States with Diego Ronderos, Secretary of Professional Football. The young man, who emerged from the lower divisions, passed his tests and now the details are finalized for his definitive transfer to the Major League Soccer institution.

Pellegrini, who on Tuesday trained with his teammates at the City Bell Country Club, will begin working at his new club in January 2020.


Pellegrini started at left midfield last Saturday in Estudiantes’ 2-0 win over Club Mitre, scoring a goal that turned out to be the game-winner. Here is a video of that game:

Inter Miami officials confirmed in response to media enquiries that Pellegrini was in Miami on Monday to meet with team executives, but said they were not ready to make a formal announcement yet. These developments came while David Beckham was in Miami for a family vacation, and it is likely he was involved in meeting with the young Argentine winger.
