The LA Galaxy has faced significant obstacles in their pursuit of signing two promising South American football prospects.
River Plate isn't in a hurry to finalize another sale in this transfer window. With Nicolás De la Cruz's transfer to Flamengo (already official) and Claudio Echeverri's move to Manchester City (set to be official), the Argentine club is set to receive substantial income, relieving them from the need to dismantle the squad or offload more players.
This financial stability led to River's uncompromising stance toward LA Galaxy's interest in Pablo Solari. According to La Pagina Millonaria, on November 27, the MLS side presented a formal offer for the winger, but it was swiftly rebuffed.
Shortly after, they revised their proposal, which was once again turned down by River Plate. Subsequently, LA Galaxy formally withdrew from the negotiations and doesn't intend to pursue Solari, at least not in this transfer window.
Following River's refusal regarding Solari, the American team went all out for Ramón Sosa, an attacking player from Talleres de Córdoba. However, they encountered yet another stumbling block; Andrés Fassi, president of the Argentine club, stood firm against the $11 million offered for the former Gimnasia player.
This sequence of events reflects River Plate's firmness in retaining its prized assets amid interest from abroad. The rejection of significant offers for both Solari and Sosa indicates the club's determination to maintain a competitive squad and highlights the value they place on their players.
River Plate's decisiveness in fending off offers signals their intent to preserve the squad's strength, emphasizing their commitment to sporting success and the continuity of their football project.
