The poor production of the Academy in the defeat against Godoy Cruz left evidence that the team urgently needs reinforcements. Between the deviations (Javier Correa and Benjamin Gare) and what will happen (Neri Dominguez), plus the small change in the hierarchy that DT had left, the Academy needs to add incorporations for the positions that have been weakened. In this regard, Racing agreed to the arrival of Maximiliano Romero as a reinforcement and from one moment to another the striker will travel to Argentina from PSV in the Netherlands.
According to what an important Racing leader told this portal, the club has agreed with the European loan team for 18 months, with an option to buy 1,500,000 for 50% of the record. The only thing left now is for the 23-year-old central striker, who is to be supported by the Academy, to finalize the details of his departure from PSV Eindhoven and then undergo a medical examination in Buenos Aires.
Maximiliano Romero, born in Loma Hermosa and a native of Veles, had two cycles in PSV. He started last in 2020 and after playing in the main team, went down to the subsidiary, where he alternated with the First. His last match was with the main team on May 15 in a 2-1 victory over Pec Zwolle. Between the First Division, Romero played a total of 36 games and scored eight goals. The striker missed many matches because muscle injuries and a torn lumbar ligament on one knee slowed him down in 2020.
Maximiliano Romero, the upcoming reinforcement of Racing, is very well known by Gago
As soon as he realized that Racing had shown interest in him, he immediately became enthusiastic and gave his representative the freedom to accelerate, also stimulated by an element: he was a partner of Fernando Gago in Fortín, in 2019-2020. Maxi had a good personal campaign this season, with a lot of continuity. In total, taking into account his two stages with a V in the chest, he participated in 65 games and scored 16 goals. At the national team level, in 2019 he joined the Sub 20, which participated in the South American Championship in Chile, led by Fernando Batista. He scored two goals.
Due to leaving Korea, Racing took tougher steps in search of 9, because Enzo Kopeti was left without a natural substitute for the position, which clearly reflects the urgency of Pinta to strengthen this position. He is also waiting for Johan Carbonero (wing) and a central marker as priorities.
