The only real chance for the Brazilian defender to escape the Betic discipline and leave good money in the treasury has just disappeared with the announcement of the same interest in the team but completing another signing.
At Real Betis, one thing is clear: they will not undercut Louis Philippethe defender will go through the great goals of Benito Villamarín. Its basic price is 15 million euros, but the sporting direction Betica He already estimated his production at at least 20 kilos. In this order of ideas, there was only one offer that came very close to that number, but it just disappeared.
West Ham United were the club who called Betis offices to negotiate the Brazilian defender. Although they didn’t give an estimated sum, Ramón Planes saw the English side’s intention to pay just over 20 million. However, the same British team has just announced another signing of Luiz Felipe in the same position.
The way they said no to Betis and West Ham’s signing of Luiz Felipe
Ramón Planes has not received a formal phone call from David Sullivan (West Ham President) or Mark Noble (Sporting Director). PBut he understood that they would no longer push for the Brazilian defender’s signing as they had just signed Konstantinos MavropanosGreek defender from VFB Stuttgart.
The British press has just announced that the operation has been completed at 20 million euros plus 5 million euros. The same money that should end up in the coffers of the Verdiblancas due to the signing of Luiz Felipe. That way, Betic’s sporting directors don’t need a phone call to understand that Hammer’s team is no longer interested in the Rio de Janeiro defender.
Betis are as they were at the start (without strong offers for Luiz Felipe)
Before the proposal from David Moyes’ team arrived, an offer from Nottingham Forest had arrived from the Premier League itself. However, this was only signed for 15 million euros. A number they consider insufficient to negotiate from the Heliopolitan offices. Thus, the Sevillian team is once again left with no concrete proposals for defense.
In Saudi Arabia there was also interest in Luiz Felipe, but only offered 10 and 15 kilos. Ángel Haro’s slogan is that he would rather see the defender in Manuel Pellegrini’s squad for another year rather than leave Benito Villamarín for a minimum sum. The Chilean coach was also impressed by the level shown by former Lazio Roma.
