In the last hours have increased the speculations around the future of Marcelo Gallardo, situating him every time with more strength in the bench of the FC Barcelona. The recent statements of Claudio Borghi only have served to feed more the rumorología, until the point that the sportive director of River Plate, Enzo Francescoli, has gone out to the step of these informations.

The ex footballer and sportive manager of River Plate gladdens that Gallardo was sounding for clubs so important like the Barcelona, although leaving clear that for now there is not at all. "It gladdens me that the Barcelona was observing it by the importance of this club", has begun the Argentinian leader, aclaranod afterwards that "there is not at all in this regard of a possible contracting".

"The same it is necessary to be prepared to face the decision that go to take"

"I know what read all and gladdens me by the envergadura of the club that is looking it, but there is not at all true. All the years Gallardo does an evaluation in December and afterwards takes the decision to follow, but this is very personal of him and his group of work. Therefore it is necessary to leave that the things sucedan", has continued in statements conceded to 'TyC Sports'.

Francescoli, this yes, no descarta any possibility and is conscious that Marcelo Gallardo could leave River Plate in the short term, as long as it appear a more interesting project like the one of the Barcelona. "The same it is necessary to be prepared to face the decision that go to take. It happened when it does some years Ramón (Díaz) said us that it had to go . But I do not think a lot in this, but they do me think much more the journalists when they ask me. I am not thinking in what it goes to happen in a pair of months, because not even it is my decision".

The sportive director of River Plate, therefore, cools the last informations that plant to Gallardo in the bench culé from this next month of December, contributing something of coherence since hardly the Barça go to change of technician to half of course. So only a hecatombe of results could cause the exit of Valverde, and for the moment is not the case.

In the FC Barcelona keep the calm

True is that the Barça has 'punctured' in several occasions this season 2019-20, but keeps colíder in LaLiga Santander and leader of his group in the Champions League. Still, therefore, it has not arrived the moment to take decisions in Can Barça. And in the case to take them, it would be necessary to see if Gallardo is, or no, the best option to relieve to the 'Txingurri' in the bench.

Other names like the one of Ronald Koeman are still in the recámara, although in the case of the Dutch only would leave the 'oranje' in summer of 2020, after the Eurocopa. The waters are in calm for now. And when the Barcelona begin to chain good results again, sure that will turn off of hit the rumours on Gallardo, Koeman and company.
