Real Betis are back in the spotlight due to their continued interest in Argentina defender Lucas Martínez Quarta. The club have set him as their main target to fill the space left vacant by the impending departure of Luiz Felipe, who is on the verge of joining Saudi football.
According to TMW, however, Fiorentina, Martínez Quarta’s current club, doesn’t seem happy with the Verdiblancos’ proposal. The offer consists of a loan with an initial fee and the inclusion of a purchase obligation if certain conditions are met. This package would have a total value of 10 million euros. Fiorentina are apparently looking for more favorable terms or a figure that better reflects the player’s potential.
The negotiations have not completely failed
Despite this apparent initial disagreement, the door remains open for future negotiations. Both clubs have the opportunity to sit down at the discussion table and find a middle ground that benefits both sides. With Martínez Quarta on Real Betis’ radar, the board are keen to strengthen the defensive line with a player who has demonstrated quality and versatility throughout his career.
