Borré at Inter

Borré was welcomed with great celebration by around 2,000 Inter fans at the airport and arrives as the main signing of the season.

In his introductory interview, he commented on his decision to defend the colors of Inter and revealed that he would like to continue in Europe for a few more years. “At first, it was a bit difficult to make the decision. Obviously, my career was focused on continuing a bit more in Europe or in other leagues, but when I got to know more about Inter’s project, when I spoke with the directors, when I met the fans, who created this bond with me, I started to become much more interested in coming to Internacional,” he said.

He also emphasized the competitiveness of Brazilian football: “You Brazilians should be proud of the league you have. Very competitive. There are competitive matches, big and strong teams, which makes the league very competitive. The international dominance it has (Brazilian football) is also clear, the last tournaments have been dominated by Brazilian teams. That motivated my decision to choose Inter.”

Borré’s Career

Colombian, Borré began his career at Deportivo Cali in 2013, at the age of 18. The following year, he scored his first goals and won his first title, the Colombian Superliga. However, it was in 2015 that he had his best season at Deportivo Cali, scoring 11 goals in 26 matches and helping his team win the Liga Colombiana Apertura.

He was signed by Atlético Madrid in August 2015 for 5 million euros and remained at Deportivo Cali for another year on loan, finishing his time at the Colombian club with 62 games and 26 goals.

His first experience in Europe was at Villarreal, on another 1-season loan from Atlético Madrid. He played 30 matches and scored 4 goals for the Yellow Submarine.

He couldn’t fit into Diego Simeone’s team and in August 2017 was bought by River Plate for 3.5 million euros, for 50% of his economic rights.

Borré did not succeed during his initial period, however, the faith placed in him by Marcelo Gallardo proved to be justified. In 2018, he stood out as a key player in the team that secured the Libertadores, overcoming archrival Boca Juniors in the epic final held in Madrid. Although he didn’t play in the final due to suspension, he was essential throughout the campaign, scoring goals in every knockout phase, including in the first leg of the final.

With River, he won 2 Argentine Championships, 1 Libertadores, 1 Sudamericana Recopa, 1 Argentine Super Cup, and 2 Argentine Cups. He was one of the most important players in the club’s most successful period, as well as being the top scorer of the “Gallardo” era with 56 goals in 146 games.

In 2021, he left the Argentine club for free after not renewing his contract and headed to Eintracht Frankfurt. Even though he left as a free agent, he allowed two million euros from his deal with the German club to go to River Plate. “I feel that money is the least important thing when you live such happy moments. It’s always good for both parties to be comfortable in a negotiation. The club also treated me very well. I saw an opportunity for me and my family. I would like to return to River whenever and if the doors are open,” he said.

In his first season at Eintracht Frankfurt, he was a key player in winning the Europa League. Present in 13 matches during the journey, the Colombian player scored four goals. One of these memorable moments occurred in the semifinal against the renowned Barcelona, where Frankfurt triumphed 3-2 at Camp Nou. Additionally, Borré scored in the final against Rangers, contributing to the 1-1 draw. His crucial participation extended to the final penalty kick, which secured the title for the Germans.

Despite his promising start, the emergence of French player Kolo Muani resulted in Borré’s reduced playing time at the German club during the subsequent season. The Colombian found himself starting in only 10 of the 32 games played by the club in the last Bundesliga season. In July, he was loaned to Werder Bremen and played 19 games, scoring four goals.
