Carlos Matheu Wikipedia
Carlos Javier Matheu (born May 13, 1985) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a central or right defender. He is currently playing for CA Banfield in the Argentine Primera División.
Matheu made his professional debut in 2004 in Club Atletico Independiente, and soon established himself as a member of the first team squad. In the Apertura 2007 he chipped in with 4 goals in 15 games, a useful return for a defender.
He nearly moved to Lokomotiv Moscow for $3.3million (£1.6million) in July 2008 but chose to play for Cagliari instead. He was now repurchased by Independiente for 1.5 million dollars for the 50% of his rights (Independiente already owned 50%). After one season in Italy, he returned to Independiente.
At the end of the 2011-12 season, Matheu's contract expired and he returned to Italy, signing a contract with Atalanta.
On 30 August 2013, the Siena board announced the loan signing of Matheu until the end of the season.
On 1 January 2016, Matheu signed for Argentine club CA Banfield.
Matheu received his first call-up to the Argentina squad for the friendly against Costa Rica on 26 January 2010.Independiente
