The Argentine midfielder is very happy at Villamarín, but his contract extension will not come cheap given the flood of offers from other clubs
Ramón Planes managed to keep Guido Rodríguez and significantly improve the Betis squad. It’s true that Luiz Felipe or Sergio Canales left, but players like Isco, Ayoze Pérez, Héctor Bellerín or Marc Roca came for free. As if that wasn’t enough, the big bombshell dropped at the last minute: Abde. Now it’s time to renew Guido. And it won’t be easy.
The World Cup winner with Argentina has been a very important player for Manuel Pellegrini since his arrival at the club. That’s why the Chilean coach tried by all means to prevent his departure from the team. Nevertheless, the club managed to keep the player for the time being Guido Rodríguez’s future at Betis is not certain.
Guido’s contract extension puts Betis in trouble
As we know, Manuel Pellegrini did not want to sell Luiz Felipe, but the club’s financial situation forced the deal to be completed. In total, the departure of the Brazilian central defender could generate up to 25 million euros, which helped balance the balance sheet. But they still want to get rid of another footballer.
As we knew Betis will listen to offers for Luiz Henrique in 2024. The young Brazilian footballer showed a very good level last season, but the season didn’t start well for him. Not only on a sporting level, as he hasn’t had many minutes of play yet, but also on a personal level, as he is involved in a major controversy.
Luiz Henrique could leave
As we learned in these first weeks of the championship, Luiz Henrique was involved in a sports betting program. The incident is currently under investigation, but the Brazilian footballer could face a harsh sanction if it turns out that he is actually linked to this unclear situation.
This controversy, coupled with the fact that he is not currently involved much in the team, makes Luiz Henrique available on the market. His sale would further ease the financial situation of the green and white club. So much so that Betis would have much more flexibility to negotiate a new contract with Guido Rodríguezwho is ready to continue for several more seasons.
