Barrios' move from Colo Colo to Nancy is off

Colo Colo striker Lucas Barrios will not be moving to French side AS Nancy, the Argentinian's agent has revealed.

Club director Luis Baquedano said on Friday the striker was close to joining the Ligue 1 side, but Barrios' agent, Ronald Baroni, ruled out the possibility because the offer from Nancy was not deemed acceptable.

"They never offered a concrete amount of money," he said. "The offer was done today and the amount was not enough. The press said many things that never happened.

"These people went to Buenos Aires and talked with us. They first had a meeting with us and then with the club. I do not know why it happened in that way.

"It is usual first to have a meeting with the club and then with the player. However, it does not matter now as things have to be solved with both parties," he added on
