Pending what the Verdiblanco club says, world champion Laurent Blanc has already given the thumbs up and Manuel Pellegrini understood it very well. It’s a matter of hours before the operation is complete.
Regardless of what Ángel Haro or Ramón Planes might say, midfielder Guido Rodríguez has decided to leave Real Betis immediately. For a few seasons that the Argentines leaves Bético set, precisely because of its good level. But apparently it will be in this market that the moment when his farewell to Heliopolis will come to an end.
Guido Rodríguez’ next target will be Ligue 1 and his new team is Olympique de Lyon led by Laurent Blanc. Of course, the gaucho is confident that this time the operation will bear fruit and not be rejected like a few days ago. Let’s recall that the French team submitted a €10m proposal which was rejected by Betis.
Lyon up the offer to 15m and hope Betis will accept and let Guido Rodríguez go
The French team raised 5 million euros on the offer to sign the talented midfielder for good. The sports management around Vincent Ponsot was able to make progress in the negotiations because they had obtained the player’s consent themselves. This makes Planes feel obliged to negotiate and even accept this new proposal.
Thus the final offer was set at 13 million plus 2 in variables for a total of 15 kilos. However, the Sevillian club are demanding 20 for the world champions, suggesting the operation will fail again. However, with a wink from the same player, Lyon are hoping it works out this time.
Manuel Pellegrini understands Guido Rodríguez’s wishes and also requests a midfielder for Betis
The equation is simple: if the Chilean coach has a reduction in his midfield squad, it is logical to ask Betic’s sporting director to sign a similar player. But Ramón Planes could say that they have already committed two troops in that area. The first was Leeds United pivot Marc Roca, who has already made his debut this season.
The latest to join Real Betis project was Sergi Altimira for whom they paid Getafe CF €2m. So that the sporting director could point to one of the two as a replacement for Guido Rodríguez. In this they will agree with Pellegrini. Now their focus is on optimally completing the operation they are already running with Olympique de Lyon.
