The arena continues to run out on the Galician club’s clock and if they do not react before the stipulated date, they will have to get much more money to face the hiring of the excellent Mallorcan midfielder.
Sergi Darder is still waiting with his suitcase at the gates of RCD Espanyol, an offer that will return him to LaLiga EA Sports, being that of RC Celtic one of them. To the captain parakeet He is no longer interested in what the blue and white fans think, and his desire is to return to the highest category. But since his contract is still tied to the Catalan team, only the payment of his clause will release him.
Until July 31, Sergi Darder has a starting price, but from August 1 that figure goes up to 50%. In economic terms, the operation would be quite complicated for Celta, since their resources in this market are limited and Rafa Benítez knows it. In addition, the pending departure of Gabri Veiga does not help much, since supposedly the boy was going to leave 40 million euros.
From 10 to 15 million, in that the clause of Sergi Darder will increase if Celta does not hurry
If today, tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday or Monday they execute the payment of the clause, it will only cost them 10 million euros. But if Tuesday arrives and the Balearic midfielder is still in Barcelona, now they will have to pay 15 kilos. This is stipulated in the player’s contract, and nothing can change it no matter how much Darder himself intercedes.
For some teams, 5 million euros is not a figure that can disrupt a club’s plans, but in the case of the Celtic team it is a major inconvenience. Let’s not forget that Carlos Mouriño authorized the execution of the purchase option of Carles Pérez for 5.2 million, and then the signing of Carlos Dotor for 3 kilos. That without counting the new chips of Jonathan Bamba and Manu Sánchez.
The teams that could pay the 15 million for Sergi Darder
Behind the Celtiña team, there are up to 6 clubs that could pay for the increase in the midfielder’s clause, even executing the operation before July 31. These are: Almería, Mallorca, Real Sociedad, Betis, Valencia and Atlético. The latter would not have financial problems, but they are evaluating other options for Simeone’s midfield.
Knowing all this, the sports management of RC Celta led by Luis Campos, there are different ways to reach the signing of Sergi Darder in an agile and efficient manner. However, the conclusion is that until you execute some starts like Gabri Veiga’sit will not be possible to carry out external operations, especially if they have a cost of 10 million euros in the future.
