Juan Iturbe missed the game against America due to gastroenteritis and their renewal is complicated in the board
Juan Iturbe ends contract with Pumas in Guard1anes 2021 and within the team they see complicated the renewal of the university midfielder, who did not play against America, due to an alleged “gastroenteritis picture”.
The Paraguayan Juan Iturbe belongs to the Pumas since 2018 and his contract expires at the end of the current tournament. Due to his high salary, the midfielder would not be renewed, so he would be free for the next season, sources informed ESPN Digital.
Juan Iturbe’s last participation was on matchday 16 of the current tournament, in which he entered to play 14 minutes against Puebla. In the tournament, he could barely play three games as a starter, then he could not earn his place in the starting eleven and it has cost him to consolidate with the Auriazules.
The team led by Andrés Lillini will seek to replace the South American footballer with someone who adjusts to the economic situation of the university students, in addition to seeking to give the youth of the quarry an opportunity.
Iturbe scored 12 goals with the Pumas, in 93 games he was able to play with the university team. Now, the South American was absent in the most important game of the season for the Pumas, the same one they arrived with with repechage aspirations, but were unable to overcome the Eagles.
The attacker, in past seasons, was about to return to play in Italy, but in the end he could not reach an agreement with the team that sought him, after adding prestige in that country, by playing with Roma.
The South American did not even appear on the bench for Andrés Lillini’s team, because he was under “observation.”
