His Dad has confirmed it:
All the claims are very similar, but the best come from Tablon Radial, who managed to speak to the player’s father.
Juan Sosa has confirmed the deal, despite saying that he still needs the work permit and will be getting an EU passport this year.
“I know that Gallardo talked to him but he didn’t tell me what they talked about, the idea is that once his participation in the U-20 World Cup is done, he comes to Buenos Aires, and travels to Liverpool to sign his contract, I will accompany him”, Juan Sosa told Tablon Radial (via AS Argentina).
“Now, it’s not closed because the signature is missing. This happened like that, it got done now. I hope that Santi can return and play again for River once again. Santi is missing a work visa, he’s going as a young talent. The community passport will be obtained by the end of the year. He’s spoken to the sports director and manager Silva, he knows him and wants him”
