Nicolás Castro has joined KRC Genk from Newell’s Old Boys.

Castro is the latest Argentine to make the jump over to Europe. The 21 year old midfielder has put pen to paper on a five year contract, keeping him at the Belgian club until 2027.

He made his senior Newell’s Old Boys debut in 2019, having previously played for the Argentina U17 national team.

    BOOM (2)!

    The Cristiano Ronaldo-Atletico operation is in motion according to AS, but first Atletico must get rid of two strikers

    — If this happens, one of the strikers out must be Angel Correa

    • Not a chance, not unless Angel himself wants to leave, which he should.
      Correa is essential for Altetico and Simeone, not only because he was their top scorer last year but also because of his work rate, fighting spirit and VERSATILITY (plays, Striker, support striker and R.Midfield). Hence there is no way Atletico would want to get rid of him ala Frankie Dejong at Barca.
      Griezman, Felix and especially Counhia would be on the chopping bloke before Correa is, even if the former 2 cost a king’s ransom.
