The note clarifies that for different reasons, among which the damages caused by Covid-19 and indiscipline stand out, 10 of those contracts were not closed and even so, the figure exceeds what was achieved in 2020 when 78 signings were reached.

The purpose of hiring athletes abroad is to increase their technical and tactical quality, as well as to promote high-level blanks.
