There is a day that was a hinge for Nicholas Lodeiro and his relationship with Boca. It's September 13, 2015. That day, at the monumental stadium, the Uruguay goal scored with which Boca won the Superclassico and jumped to the top of the tournament that would end with victory.
Lodeiro went from small to top in his two seasons as Boca's player, playing 51 matches, scored 11 goals and won two titles (local tournament and Copa Argentina 2015) with Rodolfo Arruabarena as a coach.
Now, the roads can be met again. Because Boca needs an offensive player of his style, similar to the one he will no longer have with the departure of Colombian Edwin Cardona.
That is why, beyond the more ambitious candidates such as Franco Vazquez (Sevilla) or Leandro Paredes (Zenith), the possible return of Lodeiro begins to be held in La Boca.
Lodeiro, 29 years old and born in Paisan, has a contract until December 2021 with Seattle Sounders of the United States MLS. He arrived there from Boca in mid-2016 and played 32 matches in which he scored 11 goals.
Everything will start to settle on Wednesday, when Gustavo Alfaro is officially introduced as a new coach after the departure of Guillermo Barros Scalotto. The former coach of Huracan has arrived with the approval of Nicholas Burdisso, and is expected to have a conclave with the new manager to mark the 2019 model.
In addition to reinforcing the midfield, they would also have sought a defender to cover the departure of Lisandro Magalan, sold to Ajax. There are already advanced negotiations in this area, and that's with the Paraguayans Junior Alonso, a 25-year-old left-wing center defender who has no continuity in Celta de Vigo and could become the first reinforcement xeneize.
Alonso came to Selta on a loan from Lille in France, has a contract by June but may unblock his departure and receive a loan for Boca. In January 2017, Diego Coca-Cola wanted to hire races, although at the last moment Lille won the wrestling game and bought him in Serrano Porneno, where Alonso began his professional career in 2012.
Alonso's last game was on October 19 at a loss of 1: 0 to Alaves. From that moment, the Vigo team played eight games and in none of them defended the Paraguayan defender.

In the meantime, in the event of an irresistible offer for Wilmar Barrios, his replacement is already in the folder. This is Jordan Campuzano, also Colombian 5, with a more grubby game, which is featured in the Atletico Nacional de Medellin.
