The historic qualification to the group stage of the Champions League, the surprising triumph against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu and other special chapters have experienced the Peruvian defender with his club throughout the year. And to close it with a flourish, its market value has prospered too much, on par with its successes.

As if this were not enough, the 26-year-old defender has also gradually become one of the references of this modest team that is making history in the Old Continent. .

His great performance has allowed him to be loudly voiced for the Peruvian team. In fact, coach Ricardo Gareca has not denied that he is closely following the Sheriff’s ’55’, but has not yet called him in his last calls. If he continues at this level, most likely Dulanto will have his chance with the ‘Red-White’ sooner rather than later.

Now, he must aim for 2022. The national defender will seek to stay on the throne in the league championship with the Sheriff and go as far as possible in the Europa League. At this point, there is nothing impossible for him.
