River Plate linked with Zarate loan offer

zarate actionReports in Argentina suggest Argentian club River Plate will attempt a loan deal for fellow countryman Mauro Zarate

The reports claim there was a meeting between the club and Zarate’s representative to explore a loan deal for 6 months.

Zarate managed just 71 minutes on the pitch for relegated QPR after his January arrival on loan last season. He made just four second half substitutions for the Hoops against Burnley, Southampton, Sunderland and Hull, three of which resulted in losses. Zarate was also fined two weeks’ wages worth £80,000 for throwing a tantrum before QPR’s defeat against Liverpool.

Zarate was recently quoted saying “It is an exciting time for the club and I want to be part of that. I know the new manager had a good relationship with his players at Besiktas and I want to work hard to become a part of his plans. West Ham is still a club that I love. I have been training hard and I am looking forward to showing that I can still be an important player for them.”

  1. Another one I’m split on if he truly knuckled down he could be great for the club but on the other hand he can be indisciplined and sulky. Before anyone says it of course there was the BFS factor which didn’t help but he does have previous too.

  2. Yeah he has plenty of history Quick.But you dont mess with Slav 😉

  3. Haha true enough boys,a few tough words and being picked by the scruff of the neck should sort him. Apart from the wage save can’t see what we’d get out of it tbh

  4. I would give him a chance in the europa matches,see how he does.Must admit i see him going back out the door again though.

  5. The Europe matches should be used as a shop window Zarate,Magia,Nolan,Jarvis and O,Brien could be played in all 4 first games and we should still go through and if any of the players mentioned play to Slavs ability they can stay and at the same time other clubs might show interest
