The attacker could continue playing in the first division
The SD Eibar has everything to achieve ascent directly and return to LaLiga Santander after a year. The team led by Gaizka Garitano marches as the sole leader of LaLiga Smartbank and it is most likely that he will also finish off the championship, thus obtaining a direct place in the first division.
If this happens, the sports management led by Cesar Palacios He already has an almost ready signing on his agenda. This is the far right Edgar Mendezwho terminates the contract with the Alaves, and renewal is not contemplated. The reason has to do with the possible and almost certain decrease in albiazul club to second. The attacker wants to continue being part of the first category of Spanish football.
Gaizka Garitano has the promotion of Eibar in his pocket and the signing of Édgar Méndez is very likely
The armory group only needs 2 victories to certify its direct quota to the first division. For this reason, the concentration of the Basque coach is divided between that and the signing of the attacker from Tenerife. His departure from Alavés is very certain, even if the club from Vitoria manages to remain in the first division.
Édgar Méndez would come to the squad to lend a hand to the other two wingers José Corpas and Franchu. However, he could also cover the offensive left zone, since there is only Yanis Rahmani there. His characteristics are mainly based on the player’s change of pace and his inward diagonals. He also has a timely vision to give pinpoint assists.
The signing of Méndez is not only ensured with the promotion of Eibar
If the Basque club reaches the first division again, the signing of the attacker would not be assured yet. And there are two more teams in LaLiga Santander that are trying to sign Édgar Méndez. One of them is Elche, who is one victory away from ensuring their permanence in the first division. The other is Granada, which is still in a permanent fight to stay in the elite.
Clearly Eibar’s direct rival for the signing of the Canarian winger is Elche, who will surely play LaLiga Santander 2022-23. The Eibar sports management works hand in hand with its president to anticipate the team from Elche, and they can talk to the player before finishing off the championship.
