To this day, the offensive plot is one of the points that most worries the sports director and of course the South American coach. It is clear that they have to sign, but first they must complete other operations.
Of the 3 forwards that Real Betis currently has, none have secured their place in the squad. Manuel Pellegrini and Ramon Planes he knows. In the case of Raúl García de Haro, his work was so impeccable with CD Mirandés that several teams are fighting for his incorporation. The same is true of Borja Iglesias, a race scorer who is getting closer and closer to Atlético.
And finally there is the Brazilian Willian José, who, unlike the previous 2, would leave through the back door of Benito Villamarín, due to poor performance.. Last season, the Rio de Janeiro striker had one of his weakest seasons with Betis, and the Chilean coach has already made a decision. In this way, the player has already been notified that he must search for teams in the coming weeks.
Before going for a striker, Ramón Planes must finalize the departure of Willian José at Betis
The Betic sports director is clear about the separation of the center attacker, and his efforts could speed up the process for the benefit of the Sevillian team. The underlying problem, however, is that there are no standing offers, and almost no one has called for the 31-year-old striker. The one that has come closest to his environment has been UD Las Palmas, who wants the services of an experienced attacker in the first division.
Whichever team is interested in Willian José, the Verdiblanco sports director has an urgent need to release the player as soon as possible. And it is that this is what conditions the arrival of a striker, since Pellegrini feels that every day that passes and there are no signings in the offensive field, the Heliopolitan team continues to sink more and more.
While Ramón Planes works on the departure of Willian José, he also manages the possible signings for the Betis striker
On the manager’s agenda from Lleida, there is no clear signing that will replace either the Brazilian or Borja Iglesias. The three names that the sports management is considering are for a position that, although offensive, is not for the central forward. But likewise, it is muscle that strengthens Manuel Pellegrini’s attack.
The first of these is Sergio Arribas, an undoubted jewel of Real Madrid, who has already shown that his talent overflows at Castilla. Then there is Isco’s option, but there have been certain indifferences that have dried up the interests of both parties. And finally Pablo Fornals who said he wanted to return to LaLiga, especially if Betis is his destination.
