Borré’s Transfer Drama: Nearing a Conclusion with Internacional Porto Alegre

The ongoing transfer saga involving Werder striker Rafael Borré (28) and Brazilian club Internacional Porto Alegre seems to be reaching its conclusion, according to several media reports. It is strongly suggested that Borré is set to sign a three-year contract, with only the final details left to be worked out between the two clubs.

While Borré had long reached an agreement with Porto Alegre, Werder Bremen had been holding out for significant compensation to release the loan striker from Eintracht Frankfurt. Recent reports from Brazil and Argentina indicate that a resolution has been found, bringing an end to the extended negotiations.

Complicating matters, Borré’s former club, River Plate (Argentina), expressed interest in bringing him back. Enzo Francescoli, the manager of River Plate, stated, “We spoke to Borré. He really wants to go back. We have the desire, and so does he. We will try – no matter how difficult it is.” However, River Plate’s sporting director, Leonardo Ponzio, later announced that Borré had chosen Internacional Porto Alegre’s offer over a return to River Plate.

As the transfer situation unfolds, Borré continues training with his Werder Bremen teammates, and it’s uncertain if the recent session could be his last with the team. If the transfer proceeds, it would be a significant blow for Werder Bremen, given Borré’s impactful performance with four goals in 13 games and his developing chemistry with teammate Marvin Ducksch. Borré, who initially spoke about a long-term future in Bremen, expressed a desire to be part of the club’s history. His potential departure would undoubtedly leave a mixed sentiment among Werder Bremen supporters after what seemed to be a promising tenure.
