Although a possible interest from River was rumored, Fortín moved quickly at the request of coach Gustavo Quinteros and could move forward with his hiring. They are also looking for Michael Santos, ex-Talleres, currently at Juarez FC.
At the same time, Martínez has several interested parties and is in negotiations with CF Montreal of the MLS, which recently hired Matías Cóccaro, a former Huracán player.
For this reason, Fabián Berlanga, president of Vélez, was cautious in his statements: “I find it a little difficult, in some places they are saying that he is going to Montreal and we are waiting for a response. “We were in conversations and we continue to analyze possibilities.”
