Time is running out for Sevilla
Sevilla, its board of directors and its new sports director, did not believe that they could reach a day and a half after the market closed with everything up in the air and almost everything to be done. The need for a sale with a generous capital gain or an important exit (due to the cost of the footballer), after Bono’s (which opened up salary space to sign up Lukebakio), have paralyzed operations in Nervión, who are trying to keep the flame burning of the possible incorporations, trying to convince players and possible purchasing clubs to decide once and for all. A Dantesque situation with so little time ahead.
Because in almost desperate situations, like the one experienced in the Sánchez-Pizjuán, everyone wants to take advantage at the last minute. A reduction in the assignment agreement or an increase in the commissions of the intermediaries who carry out the operations. The departures of Januzaj, Idrissi and Óscar, on which work continues, are important, but that of Tecatito Corona is crucial to address two of the three signings that Mendilibar wants. Central, midfielder (Soumaré) and attacking player. For all the pieces to fit together, at this point, a miracle is needed. And from Mexico, every public statement by Rayados leaves the door open for Tecatito to return to his country. First it was its president and last night it was the team’s own coach. However, the figures do not quite add up. The player’s only response was to ask for an astronomical salary as a barrier to leaving Europe. He has been transferred from Sevilla to the need to sell him. So far it hasn’t worked.
Víctor Orta sees the market options passing by and fears that, if at some point the exits fit, he will no longer have time to react. By Soumaré or by Ansu Fati himself, who listened to Sevilla, the Andalusian leaders knowing of their financial difficulties for an operation of this magnitude. And of no significance, too. Day and a half. Everything can happen. At this time, Sevilla is devouring the market.
