The possible departure of Ocampos and other ways for Sevilla to sign
Monchi already slipped last Saturdaybefore he Sevilla F.C. lost to UD Almería and signed its worst league start in 40 years, which predicted “tumultuous days” in this final stretch of the summer transfer market that closes at 11:59 p.m. on September 1. with a single tab available and with enough headache to squeeze the tight salary rangethere are several desirable ways to fix the criticized planning and strengthen the team -front and midfield, mainly- that depend on there being some way out. In this context the name of Lucas Ocampos as possible ‘savior’.
In the last few hours, a surprising option a few days ago and that is no longer so. The Ajax Amsterdam The Dutchman was recently interested in the situation of Ocampos at Sevilla FC and this past weekend he finalized the Antony’s transfer to Manchester Unitedan operation for which it plans to enter close to €100 million and that it would amply finance a possible offensive by the Argentine.
Ocampos he had agreed with Monchi a renewal with an increase in salary and clause that, like that of Diego Carlos, was never signed. Then came his deep decline in performance that led him to stay out of the Copa América that Argentina won last summer and that threatens to also leave him without the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Despite Tecatito’s serious injury, Ocampos does not start this course as the undisputed starter for Lopetegui, who has Lamela, Suso or the reconverted Óliver, Isco and Papu Gómez as options for the extremes. Also Munir, another of the players on the exit ramp and a very high chip that the club wants to save although it sees it as difficultas his agent has made it clear that the Moroccan does not want to move.
Sevilla’s ways to seek salary margin
All these factors push Ocampos to consider leaving a team like Ajaxthat plays Champions and that could give him back the capital role that he has been losing at Sevilla FC to help him attract the attention of Scaloni and go to the World Cup. This route, much less advanced at the moment, is one of the best that they contemplate in Nervión for being able to go for Raúl de Tomás or Lucas Boyé and provide more physicality to the midfield and/or the defense.
Another issue that has been put on the table by the sports management is the possibility of dismissing Tecatito Corona, seriously injured; but, in any case, this measure would only serve to facilitate one more record, without solving the biggest problem that is the salary margin. That’s why, in these “tumultuous days” Sevilla FC is still waiting for possible last minute offers for players like Gudelj or Delaney.
