With everything practically settled between the clubs, the striker’s agent will be in Colombia tomorrow to close the sale of 50% of Borja’s pass to River.
The Colombian Miguel Borja will be River’s first reinforcement in this mid-2022 pass market and everything can be confirmed in the next few hours. It is that after several days of uncertainty, which included waiting for the definition of the Colombian contest, where Junior de Borja could not access the final, tomorrow the agreement can be confirmed, that word is practically closed.
Borja’s representative will arrive in Colombia this Tuesday to meet face to face with Junior’s leaders and close the operation in which River will put near five million dollars and will buy 50% of the pass of the coffee attacker -the other half is from Palmeiras- to sign a three year contract. In this way, it would not be unreasonable to think that, with the passing of the week, Borja could be traveling to Argentina to be presented these days as a brand new River footballer.
Borja and the difficult task of replacing Julián Álvarez in River
The 29-year-old Colombian is the one chosen by Marcelo Gallardo to try to replace the departure of the great figure of the Millionaire, who is playing his last games before going to Manchester City. In any case, the Doll tried to take the pressure off Borja -or the footballer who was going to take his place- when yesterday at a press conference he assured that “Julián can only be replaced with functioning.”

After the end of Junior’s participation in the Colombian contest, the striker took the opportunity to take a few days off in Miami, where he met the popular singer.
