Delgado the first signing?


Marcelo Alejandro Delgado is on the verge of becoming the first signing for Belgrano de Cordoba. When asked about this the player was quoted as saying yesterday: "There is a 90% chance of a move to Belgrano and I think it will be defined tomorrow". If it is confirmed this would be the first summer signing and it would be a quality addition to the squad. Belgrano went into the transfer window looking for two forwards (highest priority) and two wingers (lower priority) but faced a very tight market with rising values. But after a couple of weeks of talks and negotiations, it seems that Delgado will finally put on a Belgrano jersey. Delgado, whose previous clubs include Racing, Boca Juniors and Cruz Azul, is a quick 33-years old forward with a taste for goal. He also played for the national team and was included in the national squad for the 1998 World Cup. He has a rich and vast experience at club level having enjoyed success and silverware during his two spells at Boca Juniors. He was also the top scorer in the Copa Libertadores 2003. After several teams showed interest in Delgado, it seems likely that Belgrano will be his destination. Belgrano needed to strengthen its squad for the Clausura 2006 and the signing of Delgado would be a great step in that direction. More to follow...
