Agustín Almendra informed the Boca Football Council of his decision to leave the club

Agustín Almendra would have made the decision to leave Boca

within hours of Boca Juniors present his second reinforcement in this market (Facundo Roncaglia joined Martín Payero) and while there is talk of several possible dismissals, the rumor that Agustín Almendra’s days in the institution are numbered: the 22-year-old midfielder would have rejected the offer to renew the contract that expires mid 2023 and asked to be transferred now so as not to go free next year.

After the departure from Sebastian Battagliawho had separated Almendra from the professional team at the beginning of 2022 due to an act of indiscipline, it had been mentioned that Hugo Ibarra would promote him again to the senior group since his assumption. The concrete thing is that the former captain of the U20 national team is recovering from an injury that did not allow him to add playing minutes and for the moment he is still off the pitch, although with a decision taken.

The exhaustion caused by working with the Reserve in the last semester, plus some offers that did not come to fruition in the last markets and the latent desire to play abroad invited Almendra to think about the idea of ​​leaving the club that saw him born and with which he won five titles (two Super Leagues, an Argentine Super Cup, a League Cup and an Argentine Cup).

Almond is one of Juan Román Riquelme’s weaknesses and probably one of the reasons why Battaglia and the Football Council did not hit it off lately. As Jorge Bermúdez stated in the last interviews he gave, the work management body respected the decision of the coaching staff to keep him away from the campus even after the end of the last semester.

As with other footballers of the Xeneizethe Council plans to manage its continuity in the coming months and Almendra was one of those targeted. However, he seems to the story will not have a happy ending and soon he could put on the shirt of another team. His last official match was when he played against Rosario Central for the last League Cup (2-1 victory at the Vélez stadium) in February of this year.

A few weeks ago, Almendra had been linked to racing clubwhich is run by a former partner of his as fernando gago. However, the Council’s wish was to transfer him to a foreign team in case of doing so on loan. Today the academy he would not notice him and his future would be outside the country. The Council, which is working on the renewals of Sebastián Villa, Frank Fabra and Agustín Rossi, will now have to face a problem that it had not thought of.
