GENOA – Juan Manuel Iturbe will not return to play in our league. The Argentine striker returned to the Mexicans of Pumas after having undergone medical visits with Genoa. Evidently, the physical tests did not provide the results hoped for by the rossoblù. For this reason, Favilli is likely to stay in Genoa, a footballer who had been joined to Rome in the last hours of the transfer market.
Genoa transfer market, Iturbe had moved to Mexico after not breaking through with Rome and Turin.
Before moving to Mexico, Iturbe had filed two less than positive experiences with Rome (68 appearances with 5 goals) and Turin (17 appearances with 1 goal). Even in Mexico, it's not that things have gone much better. Iturbe has been curbed by physical problems in series.
With Club Tijuana he played just 17 games without ever scoring, with Pumas he went slightly better with 3 goals in 25 appearances. In the meantime, Iturbe has decided to become a Paraguayan national since Argentina did not take him into consideration.
With Paraguay, he played 12 games without ever scoring. In short, Iturbe was no longer able to return to the Hellas Verona level where he scored eight goals in a single season, deserving Roma.
Genoa and Pumas had agreed on the formula of the loan with the right of redemption set at four million euros but the rossoblù decided to blow up this transfer market deal.
