Teófilo Gutiérrez is one of the Colombian soccer figures who has not yet found a team. The talented striker parted ways with Deportivo Cali with the dream of returning to Junior de Barranquilla, but the shark closed the doors on him in the voice of his largest shareholder, Fuad Char, and coach Arturo Reyes.
Thus, Teo, in his intention to return to Barranquilla, missed several opportunities from teams that probed him, both in the BetPlay League and in foreign soccer.
Thus, the train is running out and now only two teams are holding serious talks to try to sign him for the 2023 season.
In the last few hours, Unión Magdalena sent Teo an offer to hire him for a year, which would be a blow to the market for the cyclone. Gutiérrez could be interested in being close to Barranquilla, although playing in the region’s rival would not be well received by some of the junior fans.
For their part, Águilas Doradas established communication with Gutiérrez Roncancio’s entourage, offering him the bonus of playing in the Copa Sudamericana. However, the approach has not been ideal and there is no initial response from Teo.
The other team that would continue with firm intentions of signing Teo, even by 2023, is Independiente Santa Fe. The cardinal has been in talks for a long time, and the player has already confessed that he would like to play in Bogotá.
Thus, crucial hours are expected to define the future of Teófilo Gutiérrez.
