SANTIAGO.- Although reports of negotiations had already been coming out of Paraguay, goalkeeper José María Buljubasich's parting with the Universiad Católica yesterday seemed to speed things up.
Olimpia de Asunción had called the goalie a few weeks ago; however Buljubasich was still negotiating with the UC at the time, postponing talks with the Paraguayan club.
Today reports out of Paraguay indicated that the goalkeeper has already been confirmed as a new addition to the club, which hopes to regain international status.
"We have already reached an agreement with Buljubasich and we are following some other players that we would also like to add. José María's addition is an important step and we will continue to negotiate with others", Olimpia president Eduardo Delmás told the newspaper "ABC" de Asunción.
The Paraguayan team is also looking to include Argentine forward Juan Carlos Ferreira (Newell´s Old Bous) and Guatemalan national Carlos Figueroa to start pre-season training on January 5th, which is the same day Buljubasich is scheduled to join his new club.
