Monchi doubts whether to continue at Sevilla. The sports director has several offers, the most important of the Premier, and you must decide during this week if you accept any of them and leave Nervión for the second time. He feels that she has lost power in recent times over some decisions and that helps him feel that he must leave. Tottenham, among other English clubs, have him in their portfolio as one of its possible top sports managers after the departure of the Italian Fabio Paratici a little over a month ago.
It is not the first time that English teams tempt the man from Cádiz. Already in 2019, when his time at Roma was ending and before returning to Sevilla, Arsenal He was strongly interested in hiring him, but he preferred to return to Nervión, where very difficult times were going on. This season has been even more complicated than that one even though it ended with a happy ending, after winning the Europa League title.
Although planning is advanced with two signings already made, those of the Argentine center-back Federico Gattoni and the left-back Adrià Pedrosa, and was in full negotiation for José Luis Mendilibar to continue, Monchi is considering whether to go one step further in some doubts that have been around him for months, even since last summer. Then there was a tremendous tug of war with the club that first led to the continuity of Julen Lopetegui and then, against his willin the departure of the Gipuzkoan coach at the beginning of October.
The hiring of Jorge Luis Sampaoli, that it was not his first option as a replacement for Lopetegui, it also turned out a reason for friction with other members of the leadership of Sevilla and continues to be, in fact, a wound that has failed to heal not even with the achievement of the Europa League. So the pressure from England weighs more and more and may end up breaking the rope so that the most successful sports director in Nervionense history leaves again.
