The Paraguayan Oscar Romero is now with Racing and will be Centurion’s replacement.
Racing has experienced a lot of action in the couple of days; just after the club announced their star Ricardo Centurion had left to join Sao Paulo, they announced the new acquisition of Romero for $2.7 million USD.
Romero, 22 years-old, played as left-winger in Cerro Porteño and is the twin brother of the Corinthians player Angel Romero. His debut in first division was in 2012, at the age of 19, against General Caballero where Cerro Porteño lost 1-0.
After turning in good performances in the Copa Sudamericana, including a hat-trick against Lanus, his value as a player doubled and he was close to joining Corinthians with his brother Angel.
He debuted with the national team in August 2013 against Germany and scored his first goal with the Paraguayan national team in May 2014 against Cameroon.
Racing Club, the reigning Argentinian champions, are also close to signing Washington Camacho from Defensa y Justicia and striker Ezequiel Rescaldani from Malaga.
