The Mexican defender arrived at the club last January and since then has become a fixture for Diego Martínez in the center of defense
After a season full of doubts, in January they finally got some good news. He signing of Cesar Montes It was a great success on the part of the Spanish, as it has established itself as one of Diego Martínez’s fixtures. The man from Hermosillo has also won over the fans, becoming one of the pillars of the team both in the present and for the future of the project.
In fact, his level has been so good in the seven games he has played that not only has he taken the team out of the bottom zone of the standings, but the sports management is already looking for a companion for next season. And it is that Espanyol knows that it has found a leader in César Montes and wants to get the most out of the Mexican soccer player.
Espanyol wants a young defender along with César Montes
Despite the fact that at this time Diego Martínez has good defenders under his orders like Sergi Gómez, Fernando Calero or Leandro Cabrera, the club is aware that they need to rejuvenate the team’s defense. That is why they are considering the possibility of incorporating a Real Madrid youth squad who left the white club last summer.
This footballer is none other than Mario Gila, one of the leaders of Real Madrid Castilla from last season. After several years at the white club, he decided to head to Italy, signing for Lazio, who paid 6 million euros for his signing. But in Serie A the footballer has not done well at all, since he has barely had opportunities.
Mario Gila could return to Espanyol next summer
Total, Mario Gila has only played 11 games this season, which translates into only 675 minutes of play. A very poor figure for a 22-year-old player with great potential who is not at all happy with how things are going for him. That is why next summer he could agree to a loan with Lazio to have more minutes of play.
The international in lower categories with the Spanish National Team has a clear link with the parakeet club, since in youth he belonged to the club. Also, he is from Barcelona, so he would welcome returning to his city. Even more so if it is to form center-back pairing with César Montes at Espanyolbecause both could be one of the revelation couple of the next season in the Santander League.
