The most recent injury to the Wizard of Arguineguín, has sentenced his career and has practically left a free place in the real squad, which will be occupied by a player on Rafa Benítez’s agenda.
Everyone at Real Sociedad was excited to have David Silva for another year, but in recent days, the midfielder suffered a serious injury. Although the medical report has not yet been issued, it seems that the former Manchester City player injured his knee, and his recovery time would be between 6 and 8 months. Practically, this fact is the sentence of his professional career.
Before this unfortunate injury, Chino Silva was already thinking about retiring, although some information placed him at UD Las Palmas. Then it was defined that the creative midfielder would play one more season with the Real society. But the truth is that his farewell to professional football is very close. While that is finishing cooking, the Txuri Urdin club is already preparing the relief of the canary, who turns out to be a player on the agenda of RC Celta.
Real Sociedad has Thiago Alcántara on its radar as David Silva’s replacement
In the same position but not the same profile. This is clear to Imanol Alguacil, who sees in the Italian-Brazilian the perfect replacement for the Chinese. The current Liverpool FC player plays a bit further back, but his conditions for carrying the ball at his feet are very striking. At least like this it demonstrated it in the FC Barcelona, and he remained verified in the Bayern Munich.
Although it treats of a fascinating player with extraordinary qualities, in the English team do not think the same. In fact, Jurgen Klopp is very aware of this operation, since he needs to release the former Barca to free up a place in the midfield. On the other hand, the directives of the Reds team would not oppose the departure of the midfielder, and would facilitate his arrival in San Sebastián.
David Silva’s injury ruins RC Celta’s plans
Luis Campos and Carlos Mouriño were already working on the signing of Thiago Alcántara, but the meddling of the San Sebastian team complicates everything. It is clear that the club chaired by Jokin Aperribay has the advantage for different reasons. The first is that financially they are better positioned, and this has been seen with the signings of recent years.
The other thing that the Italian-Brazilian would pay attention to is that Real Sociedad will play in the Champions League, while RC Celta did not qualify for any international tournament. Even with the clear inclination of the balance, the Galician team will not withdraw from the operation so easily and they will continue working on the return of the former Barcelona to LaLiga.
