Without options at Espanyol, Óscar Melendo looks favorably on his signing for Almería

The one from San Adrián de Besós knows that if he decides to stay the remaining six months of his contract with the parakeet team, he will not have great opportunities in the starting eleven. In fact, in the first half of the championship he only accumulated 650 minutes spread over 12 games. It is clear that he does not play an important role in Vicente Moreno’s scheme.

For the same reason, the sports management offered him a contract with very low expectations according to the footballer himself. Melendo’s wish is to immediately leave the parakeet squad and join his next possible team, Almería. However, if the winger arrives at the Estadio de Los Juegos Mediterráneos in this market, the Almería team will have to pay a payment for the player’s departure.

Almería will offer downwards for Óscar Melendo’s pass

There is great interest on the part of the rojiblanco team in having the attacker’s services right now. The main drawback is the monetary part, especially knowing that in 6 months it will be free. However, the arrival of Melendo could be decisive for the consolidation of the title and later the promotion to first.


In this way, Almería has determined to send an offer with a price well below 3 kilos, which is the figure at which its base value is set. If Espanyol rejects it, the club from Indál will not insist more, and will patiently wait for the summer market. In the same way, the player will pressure the perica sports management to reach an agreement with his next club.
