Club Brugge Bolsters Defense with Zaid Romero

In an exciting development, Club Brugge has successfully secured the transfer of Zaid Abner Romero from Estudiantes de La Plata. The deal, worth around €6 million, sees the 24-year-old central defender committing to a long-term contract with the Belgian club. Estudiantes, in turn, has ensured future financial benefits by including a sell-on clause in the agreement.


Zaid Romero, born on December 15, 1999, in Mendoza, Argentina, stands at an imposing 1.92 meters. Known for his versatility, Romero primarily plays as a center-back but can also be deployed as a left-back. His market value, as of June 12, 2024, stands at €6 million. Romero’s defensive prowess and ability to adapt to multiple positions make him a valuable asset for Club Brugge.

Strategic Move for Both Clubs

The transfer is a strategic move for both Club Brugge and Estudiantes. By adding Romero to their roster, Club Brugge strengthens their defensive line with a player who has shown considerable promise in Argentina’s Liga Profesional. Romero’s height and defensive skills, combined with his left-footed capability, add a new dimension to Brugge’s defense.

For Estudiantes, the inclusion of a sell-on clause ensures that they will benefit from any future transfers involving Romero. This clause provides financial security and potential future revenue, making the deal advantageous for both parties.
