The Verdiblanco team plans long-term with the ambitious idea of playing in the highest continental competition
The start of the season Real Betis has only reinforced the thought of reaching Champions League. Until Sergio Canals, one of its most important players, has set himself the goal of being among the top four. A prize that in the long run would allow us to make a huge leap in quality and enjoy financial muscle.
The planning of the club goes that way. So much so that they are already beginning to weave a list of possible signings that would reach the Betis in case of playing the Champions League. Signings of a very contrasted level and that will allow those of Pellegrini expand your options in all lines.
The signing that Betis is looking for if it plays the Champions
To the already known objectives of Aouar, Ceballos and Bellerin, we must add a world-class player. We are talking about Memphis Depay, who would arrive at Betis as long as the Champions League is played. We will have to wait until June, but the sensations are very good. Also, Memphis is good friends with Aouar.
Memphis wants to play the Champions League with his great friend Aouar at Real Betis
In recent years, Real Betis has taken a step forward in the market, capturing great players like Fekir, paying a significant amount of money to get him signed. But this situation has not only taken place with the talented French midfielder, but also with other important footballers such as Borja Iglesias or Guido Rodríguez, who aroused great interest among important teams.
Now, shortly after winning the Copa del Rey, the Verdiblanco club wants to continue growing. And for this they have set an ambitious goal in the transfer market. That goal was none other than Houssem Aouar, an Olympique de Lyon footballer who was very close to landing at Real Betis.
The signing dreamed by Real Betis
The French midfielder was the signing that most excited the fans, even beating Dani Ceballos. And it is that, with Fekir still in the team, they expected Aouar to offer the same level. But due to the delicate economic situation of Real Betis, the transfer could not be completed as all parties expected.
In fact, at certain times the option of Aouar ending up playing for Benito Villamarín seemed to disappear completely, as he was also very close to heading for the Premier League. He has finally continued in Ligue 1, but his contract with Olympique de Lyon has not been extended at the moment.
Aouar is still a real option for Real Betis
In this way, the player of 24 continues to be a feasible option for the Verdiblancos. The price of him could be around 10 million euros, but Olympique de Lyon is trying to renew his contract. And it is that, in case of not doing so, the French team could lose one of its best players without receiving financial compensation.
Real Betis knows that the player is interested in joining the project, but to do so he will have to wait until the market opens again. Something that could have negative consequences for the footballer, because if he does not renew his contract, he could watch a large part of the season from the stands. That is why he will ask Real Betis to make an effort to sign him in the winter.
