The Real Betis Balompié continues working with the intention of getting into the avant-garde positions of La Liga, taking into account that the project of Manuel Pellegrini It is growing impressively due to the great work of the Chilean coach and the sports management, who have managed to create a squad capable of fighting for the top positions in the Spanish first division.
The intention of the Verdiblanco club is to continue working to build a squad capable of fighting for the top positions and ensuring a sustainable future, taking into account that they have many players for whom they can get a good amount of money.
Betis’ new goal
One of the positions they want to renew is that of center-back because, beyond everything mentioned, they are showing many defensive problems at the beginning of the season and their intention is to incorporate a young center-back who can give security to their block, taking into account Marc Bartra and Germán Pezzella are 30 years old, and Víctor Ruiz is 32 years old. They need a major renovation in the area.
Manuel Pellegrini, together with his coaching staff and that of the club, are looking for a young center-back who can provide variations and security, but who is also young and with conditions to continue improving. They don’t want to bet on a more experienced name because they already have those profiles, so they are targeting one of the most promising young center-backs outside of the big five leagues.
According to the information we handle at Fichajes.net, Pellegrini is delighted with the performance of Carlos Cuesta, both in the Colombian national team and Genk, and will ask the Real Betis board of directors to try to sign him next summer.
Carlos Cuesta, 22, ends his contract in the summer of 2023 and is a market option due to his great performance. His price is valued at 15 million euros and his performances have made him the best Colombian center-back at the moment.
