On Wednesday, last day of August and penultimate of the summer transfer market, has started with strong emotions. If the fans of Sevilla F.C. woke up startled by the unexpected news that arrived from Amsterdam and that placed Lucas Ocampos flying back to Nervión after breaking his transfer to Ajaxonly a few hours later it has transpired that Munir El Haddadi has been absent from morning training and travels to Getafe to formalize his signing with the Madrid club and thus save the hiring of Adnan Januzaj, who has been in Seville since last morning.
Munir’s departure, brought forward in @Relief by the journalist matthew moretto, was a priority for Sevilla FC since the beginning of the market. as conveyed to Sports stadium your agent, the Spanish-Moroccan winger had no intention of moving and he was not in the least afraid of starting as a secondary option for Julen Lopetegui, since in the previous three years with the Basque he always started with the discard poster and ended up playing. In fact, I had rejected several options that had come out in LaLiga (one of them, from RCD Espanyol).
With a record of around 2.2 million euros, only 10 more months of contract with Sevilla FC and a residual role in the coach’s plans, his departure has never been a matter of money. In fact, in the absence of knowing more details, everything points to the Getafe CF He will pay a symbolic amount and will take Munir practically for free, with the Sevilla team prioritizing salary savings. In fact, Caparrós signed him for the Nervionenses for only one million six months after his contract with Barça ended, so he was more than amortized in these 113 official matches, with 25 goals, 7 assists and a title, the Europe League of 19/20.
Munir’s departure, in the absence of these medical tests and that the clubs give official confirmation, seems like a savior for the last revolution in the squad that Monchi has undertaken in the last hours of the market. With Adnan Januzaj in Seville since last morningpending the medical tests prior to the signing of his contract as a free agent, the break (not definitive) of the signing of Ocampos by Ajax had threatened to blow up the hiring of the Belgian winger and that of a striker, with the Danish Kasper Dolberg as the best placed and waiting for the ‘OK’ to also travel to Seville.
If Ocampos came back, Sevilla FC would be left without liquidity and salary margin. Munir would fix it. And if both leave, another winger like Tsygankov or a midfielder could even fall, since there were three free chips plus the opportunity to drop Corona. Above, the options of Raul de Tomas, Lucas Boye and Umar Sadiq had been discarded for expensivebut in this transfer market you go from white to black, from possible to impossible and vice versa in a matter of minutes and without going through a middle point.
So much so, that from San Sebastian they report that the negotiations between Real Sociedad and UD Almería for the Nigerian striker have broken down when Turki claimed more money when the agreement for about 20 million plus 5 in variables had already been taken for granted. They live hours of authentic madness.
