"For me, Maidan is a loyal warrior," with this expression Marcelo Gallardo once defined Jonathan Maidan in an interview with ClarinAnd Jony showed it clearly in the yard. A man of thousands of battles has always laid his face, chest and head to defend River's shirt, which has sometimes left scars on the body of the product from targets and cuts. The warrior has everything he wants to go to Mexican football, so one of the last of the history of this facility is gone. Only Captain Leonardo Ponzio remained of those who started with Muñeco in the middle of 2014.
Mexican Toluca has decided to take it and make it a millionaire offer, difficult to reject. Players around the world told Clarin that this time Maidan sees good-looking eyes and is more committed to accepting this offer. "Not only for the economy, he felt he had already given and won everything in the river, and what better way to go with the Copa Libertadores in their hands," commented the man close to the player.
Maidana is an atypical case of modern football, at least in this part of the world. He plays eight and a half years in the river. All records. And his story with the red band is a movie. He lived everything. From the hardest, as it were, to losing the category, to National B, one year after his arrival to the club and being part of the reconstruction to touch the sky with his hands. Jony joined the Matías Almeyda team, who returned River to the first division and then won 11 titles, two with Ramón Díaz as a coach and 9 with Gallardo. Beast.
What would happen if the guarantees from Puebla de México were adapted to the river at the beginning of 2014 when the Mexican club came to look for it? It would be another Maidan story. He finally did not leave and the best came. He was the standard bearer of a million dollar defense. The control panels passed and stayed firm. He played with several on the side. Let's take a look at: Alexis Ferrero, Adalberto Román, Agustin Alayes, Leandro González Pires, Jonathan Bottinelli, Eder Alvarez Balanta, Emanuel Mamman, Germane Pezzella, Ramiro Funes Mori, Arturo Mina, Lucas Martinez Quarta and Javier Pinola. The most symbolic couples are definitely Maidana-Funes Mori and Maidana-Pinola, teams of American championships in 2015 and 2018.
By improving the play of several young people who played next to him, the idea that Maidan made money from the river was reinforced. Among the sales of Mammany, Pezzely, Funes Mori and Balanta, the Núñez club has earned almost $ 25 million.
Anyway, there are still no details about game confirmation. Your representative will meet river management in the next few hours and will be defined. Maidana has a contract with Núñez in June of this year. Then, because it is less than six months left, River does not get any money because Toluca, the club involved, can agree with the player directly.
The idea of Maidana, if you leave, is to do well and keep the club's money. For this reason, it would be necessary to resolve whether they would give up only premium and price debts, or whether part of the Toluca offer would go to the river treasury.
Meanwhile, he says the Greek is already leading another defender for the arrival of Chilean Paulo Díaz. There were contacts with teenager Sebastian Cáceres of Uruguay Liverpool, who is part of his U-20. And someone thought he was going to dial Nicolás Otamendi to see if there was a chance of a Manchester City central score and the Argentine national team. Now it's very difficult, but in mid-year maybe …
Football dropped in Ezeiza
The Greek team made this Saturday morning's first exercise in the Ezeiza area after the mini preseasonu in Punta del Este, which was shortened by Marcel Gallard's decision, given that the courts were not in the required conditions, formal The first job in Buenos Aires reduced soccer and started to adapt football again. Sure, on Sunday morning when the river returned to training, football practice would begin to outline the team that will play friendly for the first time against Nacional in Uruguay and then against Defensa y Justicia next Saturday at Monumental on the start of an official doll team competition.
