Unexpectedly, the transfer market Boca Juniors seems to have become agitated with the news arriving from Europe. In Spain they assure that the goalkeeper Agustin Rossi is on the radar Barcelona facing the possible departure of the substitute goalkeeper, the Brazilian Grandchild.

was the diary Sport which, in a note signed by the journalist Tomás Andreu, reported that Rossi was offered to the club Blaugrana before the versions that indicate that Neto could leave in the current transfer window or in the next one, at the latest. In this way, the 26-year-old Argentine is positioned as one of the alternatives of those led by Xavi to take the place of substitute for the German Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

However, there are some obstacles that could complicate the operation. The first one is that the Argentine player does not have a European passport, so he would occupy a non-EU position and this reduces his chances of joining the squad. In addition, there is the high cost of the Rossi record: in Spain they venture that Boca could ask for about nine million euros for the pass.

The footballer emerged from Chacarita Juniors, with steps through Estudiantes de La Plata, Defensa y Justicia, Antofagasta de Chile and Lanús, has a contract until 2023 with the Xeneize and his termination clause is 18 million dollars. as he knew InfobaeIn recent times there have been talks between the club’s leadership and the player’s entourage to agree on a salary increase, but this has not yet materialized.


It is not the first time that Rossi has played in a European team. At the beginning of last year it had been in the file of the Udinese from Italy and there was even an offer for his file, but at that time Boca considered it insufficient. After some talks, the Italians improved the proposal, but the transaction was never carried out because it was subject to the goalkeeper leaving Juan Musso (he was eventually transferred to Atalanta a few months later).

The current starting goalkeeper of the Ribera team already has a good record in the eyes of the Barça people. On December 14, he was the great figure in the match that both teams played in Saudi Arabia as part of the Maradona Cup. In the 90 minutes they equalized 1-1, thanks to goals from Jutgla and Exequiel Zeballos, and in the shots from twelve steps, Xeneize prevailed with Rossi as a figure, who saved one of the shots.

A few days before, his performance had been crucial for Boca to establish itself in the Copa Argentina. In the final against Talleres de Córdoba, after a 0-0 draw in the regular 90 minutes, he held off Héctor Fértoli’s shot in the penalty shootout and paved the way to the title.

While these versions of his future are woven, Rossi will have his first challenge of 2022 this Monday with the friendly that Boca will play against Colo Colo from Chile for the Summer Tournament. The goalkeeper is expected to start in the duel corresponding to Group A, which will start at 21 in the stadium One Jorge Luis Hirschi from At payment and will be arbitrated by Darius Herrera.
