Another who returns is Lucas Saltita González, who will break his loan at Santos Laguna in Mexico and returns to Argentina after 6 months on loan. In the next few hours he will arrive in Argentina and make himself available to coach Ricardo Zielinski.
In addition, the Red seeks to finalize the return of Domingo Blanco on loan from Dnipro, from Ukraine. Another fact to take into account is that the Dnipro area continues to be in a war and that could make it easier to leave.
