Betis is already planning the next season with the usual financial constraints when it comes to signing, a circumstance that will not disappear unless there is some sale (unexpected, right now) that leaves large capital gains in the box or another source of income enters the club. money via investment fund or capital increase. As it is, the entity focuses on assignments as the first resort to reinforce the team with important footballers, who can have the band of starters. One of the favorites for the extreme is Abde Ezzalzouli, who returns to Barcelona after a successful season on loan at Osasuna.
Abde, 21, has become essential for the team from Pamplona to come to fruition in what has possibly been the best campaign in its history, having played in the Copa del Rey final and then entering Europe, in the Conference League, after achieving 7th place in LaLiga. The Pamplona team would love to have the footballer back, although Barça’s primary intention is to make cash with him or, in any case, lend him another loan but take another step as a player in a somewhat more appetizing showcase such as the one in Heliopolis.
At the Camp Nou they intend to get more than 25 million euros for the Moroccan, an amount that can only be faced in the Premier League. But so far no offer has come close to those amounts. Abde, who has scored six goals and given two assists this season, has a contract at Barcelona until 2026. There is no rush on either side.
And that’s where the figure of the new Betic sports director enters, Ramón Planes, who knows the player well because he is the one who recruited him for the Barça lower categories two years ago, when he was a member of Hercules. The termination clause, of two million euros, was then paid by Barça for a footballer whose value has multiplied in recent times.
