Tigre President Ezequiel Melarana feels that Inter-owned striker Facundo Colidio could very well stay at Tigre until the end of the current European season, even if there are other Argentine clubs interested in his signature.

Speaking to Argentine broadcaster Radio La Red, via FCInter1908, Melarana expressed confidence that the 22-year-old’s loan at Tigre could be extended, and also suggested that there could be a market for him back in European football next June.

Colidio has been on loan at Tigre for the last year, where he has been looking to reestablish his career after having failed to find a loan club during the summer of 2021.

The Argentine looks to have found his feet, with eight goals and eight assists for the ambitious Argentine top flight club.

Now, Colidio has been linked with some other teams in the Argentine top flight.

However, for his part Melarana isn’t so sure that this is what will happen.

“Colidio’s loan expires on 31 December, several club are interested in him, I’m confident, we’re working, it’s almost certain he’ll stay with us for another six months,” the Tigre President said.

Asked if he has been speaking with Inter Vice-Preisdent Javier Zanetti, Melarana replied that “We didn’t make the transfer with him, but rather with one of the Sporting Directors of Inter, he’s the one we’re talking with.”

“We’re well aware that Inter will have other offers for the player, but Facundo is doing very well here,” he continued.

“He welcomes the possibility of a market outside Argentine, but for next June, the European transfer window always represents a strong temptation for player.”

“The January transfer market is a bit strange, and there’s the World Cup in between,” Melarana continued.

“That’s why I’m confident that we’ll be able to keep him here for another six months.”
