“Chuy always said that he wants to stay; He told us all, also Álvaro (Dávila). The important thing is continuity; If it were up to me, Chuy would stay for at least a year and hopefully longer, for him; but Álvaro is the one who negotiates with him and Pablo Aguilar, I think since January. Chuy once told me that he would like to renew and finish his degree in Blue Cross. I do not think there is a problem for the two to continue. We will come to an arrangement, God willing, ”he said.

For the moment here I am and I will continue at this time ”.
