Colo Colo lived a night to forget in the 2024 Copa Libertadores. Despite Cacique’s dominance at the Monumental Stadium, the lack of goals and danger ended up sealing a tough 1-0 defeat against Fluminense that leaves him hanging in his aspirations of advance round.

However, there are positive points that can be rescued after the fall, and one of them is the level of Alan Saldivia. The Uruguayan was a good figure in the Alba defense, even earning the praise of the historic Felipe Melo.

“The defender who plays on the right caught my attention. He is very good. He is fast and strong. He has the personality to go out playing. “I spoke to him after the game and I told him ‘I’m going to see you in Europe very soon,’” the Brazilian told AS Chile.

Well, in Colo Colo they are already rubbing their hands thinking about a future sale of the 22-year-old defender. For this reason, he has had a million-dollar exit clause for some time for any club that wants to retain his services.

The team that signs the Uruguayan will have to put two million dollars into the Monumental Stadium, a figure that was agreed upon in the defender’s last contract renewal. This being the case and if Felipe Melo’s word is kept, Cacique could have almost certain income in the future if Saldivia maintains the level and interests abroad.

Alan Saldivia’s tremendous numbers

The Uruguayan defender took the undisputed starting jersey almost from his debut with the Colo Colo first team. His first meeting with the Cacique took place on April 9, 2023 against Santaigo City for the Chile Cup, where the albos won 2-0 at the Monumental.

Adding all the competitions and since that match, Saldivia has played a total of 44 games with Cacique, where he contributed with one assist, saw five yellow cards and one red in 3,634 minutes of play.

It should be remembered that the Uruguayan arrived at the Monumental in 2021 from Montevideo City Torque in his country. The defender first finished his training process in young white football, where he played for almost two full years, before making his debut in the first team under Gustavo Quinteros.

When does Colo Colo play again?

Cacique’s next game will be against Audax Italiano this Sunday, May 12, starting at 3:00 p.m. at the Bicentenario Stadium in La Florida. The Italians come from beating O’Higgins 5-0 and are in 13th place with eleven points.
