This Monday was a day full of news related to Rogelio Funes Mori. On the one hand, it was known that he completed the procedures to become a Mexican citizen and is already a citizen, so Gerardo Martino can cite him for the National Team for the Concacaf Gold Cup. On the other hand, it was learned that Monterrey has an important offer on the table to sell to the forward.

According to what was reported by various media in Argentina, such as La Página Millonaria, River Plate is interested in hiring the Mellizo in the event that Rafael Santos Borré leaves the institution. The Colombian didn't renew a contract that expires on June 30 with the Argentine club and the leadership is looking for a replacement.

Rogelio Funes Mori still has a three-year contract at Monterrey, a club where he is one of the top scorers in history. For this reason, in case River Plate wants to hire his services, he will have to pay a sum close to 7 million dollars, which is the amount for which Rayados will begin to negotiate with the forward.

If the transfer is finalized, Monterrey will win, since when he hired Funes Mori from Benfica, his file came out 3.6 million dollars. Now that value could be doubled.

Let's remember that Funes Mori played for River Plate in his early days as a professional player, where he didn't leave a good memory as the fans criticized him for his lack of goal. Now his present is completely different. Will they accept it back?
