The fate of the Catalan attacker is already cast in the Blaugrana team, and his arrival at Benito Villamarín depends on the efforts that Ramón Planes is carrying out with the Verdiblancos discard list.
There is a verbal agreement between Real Betis and the extreme right Álex Collado, but there are many obstacles that prevent the operation. The main one is that the 25 chips of the first team are already occupied, and even Chadi Riad (next signing from Barca Atléti) will play with a subsidiary. So if there are no outputs in the Sevillian paintingit will be difficult to incorporate Catalan.
the schedule of Ramon Planes It is wide, and the names of various players who are on the verge of starting are written on it. Some are there for a good level where several clubs are interested and could leave good profits in the Betic coffers. Others on the contrary, since they do not count for Manuel Pellegrini. The fact is that the output tray must be moved to undertake the signing of Collado.
Betis have 4 players in red to carry out the signing of Álex Collado
Of the long list of Betic footballers ready to leave Benito Villamarín, there are 4 that stand out for their high odds. These are there because of their high level and high demand in other leagues. In order of importance, These are: Juan Miranda, Juan Cruz, Rodri Sánchez and Raúl García de Haro. There is a common factor, and that is that all of them are young with tremendous projection.
There are several teams that have called the offices of the Verdiblanco team to ask about the situation of each of these 4 cracks. With a single operation that is carried out in the next few days, they will be able to give the green light to the signing of Álex Collado. Both Manuel Pellegrini and his coaching staff need his services, after the casualties of Joaquín and Sergio Canales.
While Betis resolves the contractual mess, Álex Collado does not stop working
Although the attacker from Sabadell returned to his original team after his loan spell at Elche CF, he did not travel with FC Barcelona to the United States. From the general management under the command of Joan Laporta they understood that if the winger did not fit into Xavi’s plans, there was no reason to include him in the preseason. So the attacker is at his place of residence, doing his physical preparation with a personal trainer.
The culé team gave the letter of freedom to Álex Collado with one year left on his contract, but on one condition. S30% of the sports rights have been reserved, in a future operation. A deal that Betis thought was fair, for a footballer who can contribute greatly. Now it remains to wait for Planes to untangle this uncomfortable situation in the wage bill.
