The window is still open but there has been plenty of activity ahead of the Argentinean Superliga season that kicks off soon. Here are 5 new faces to watch
Mauro Zárate – Boca Juniors
After eight goals in 13 appearances from his loan back at boyhood club Vélez Sarsfield last season, everything was agreed for Mauro Zárate to make the move permanent. However, a last-minute change of heart saw Boca Juniors make a deal with Watford and the controversial move has disgusted Zárate’s own family and led to death threats from Vélez supporters.
A questionable mentality aside there is no doubting Zárate’s qualities and he joins the stacked Boca squad as they attempt to claim a seventh Copa Libertadores title.
The arrival of Uruguayan Lucas Olaza has also ruffled feathers and sparked conspiracy theories of the the AFA helping out Boca over the hiring of foreign players but regardless with the additions of Sebastián Villa, Carlos Izquierdoz and goalkeeper Esteban Andrada plus Darío Benedetto back from injury, Boca remain the team to beat.
The main question is how does Guillermo Barros Schelotto keep everyone happy.
