Guedes increases in value despite his discreet World Cup

The future of Gonçalo Guedes is already being defined. Yes now. The Portuguese winger, once he has finished his participation in the World Cup, goes on vacation but lives pending his mysterious future. Guedes has been very present in the World Cup since he has been a starter in the four games that the Portuguese team has played but his performance has not been as expected. Rather discreet.

However, the market value with which the World Cup started has nothing to do with the current one. It has increased significantly. Although on the eve of the football event was valued at 68.7 million euros, once finished his participation has amounted to 74.4 kilos. It is a contrast of situations. Not in vain, there are other stars of the world who, by doing a more than discreet performance, have lost value.

The player is awaiting the decision making of the PSG. Valencia launched its offer some time ago. Close to 40 kilos and waiting for the World Cup not shoot your quote. Their actions have not been as for that, but it is true that their market value continues to rise according to Cies Observatory.

Undabarrena has its future far from Lezama

Iker Undabarrena will race far from Lezama. The Biscayan midfielder will be former rojiblanco player starting this Saturday, which is when he finishes his contract with the Ibaigane entity. Linked to the Athletic from alevín age, the one of Gorliz is one of the soccer players with more future of all those that have militated this season in the branch. “Iker is a great footballer and I have a weakness for him, injuries have not let him get to where I think he would have come from, which is the first team, but he is young and we can have a great footballer,” said Gaizka Garitano of the midfielder. last April.

All in all, Athletic has not addressed its renewal for months. The sports management considered that it had tied Mikel Merino and did not move a finger to ensure the continuity of Undabarrena, who last season was one step away from playing on loan in the Second Division, but who finally stayed at Lezama to enhance the playoff options of promotion of Bilbao Athletic.

Undabarrena (23 years old) has left behind two serious knee injuries and has regained his best tone. Captain of Bilbao Athletic, Gorliz could have left Lezama when he left the Basconia after receiving offers from other quarries, but opted for Athletic.

The Bilbao club, despite finishing contract, did not include him in his list of casualties on May 30, although by then his goodbye was sung. The Athletic moved a first option of renewal in the first round and since then there have been no more contacts. The club at no time proposed him to promote the preseason of the first team, which is something he did with one of his teammates during the process of renewing their respective contracts.

Valencia forces a ‘top’ purchase to Juve by Cancelo

The case of Joao Cancelo is going to test Juventus and that muscle that has so much publicized. He is able to pay 90 million for Higuain to be a master in the signings at zero cost fruit of the work with time of his staff of technicians. And Valencia is the main interested party that has already sent him by telephone and in person what are the conditions for the transfer of the Portuguese side.The price of Cancelo is around 40 million and the top recruitment scale of the Juventus squad has five players who have exceeded that figure. From Higuain, which is the signing for the most paid in its history (90 kilos). And they are followed by Buffon, with 52, Douglas Costa, with 46, Thuram, with 41.6 million and Nedved, with 41.2.
These are the most expensive signings for which the Turin team has paid … and the price of Cancelo are those 40 kilos that the club of Mestalla has set to give Joao Cancelo exit.
Juventus is a big European, but unlike other clubs do not always go with the checkbook to market. It is difficult for him to take that step and he does it very punctually. The case of Cancelo is to see if the Valencia is enforced and takes out the 40 kilos.

There are no players in the operation

Valencia will not allow players in the operation. Juventus have tried but have found that the Mestalla club needs cash. Do not reduce the sale price because it does not help to cover this mismatch in the budget to close the 2018-19 financial year. He tried with Pjaca but Valencia said ‘no’. Only money.

The return of Borja is not easy

The Celtic fan unanimously demands the return of Borja Iglesias. However, his presence in the squad that will run the next season Antonio Mohamed is not clear, despite the fact that Zaragoza has not achieved the promotion to First Division.
The striker, who has signed in the Second 22 goals this season, has one year left of contract with the club from Vigo and has a clause of 10 million euros.
We will decide the best for both parties; Borja has shown a very clear commitment to Celta and will have our maximum understanding to stay or leave ”
The choice of the player seemed clear. If the team had risen, they would pay the clause and would remain in a team in which they have been tremendously happy. The not having ascended makes that option impossible, for that reason the tears of the santiagués last Saturday on the lawn of La Romareda.
For now, must be presented on the next day 9 to begin the preseason with Celta. But before that date, his future could be solved by having offers from First Division teams such as Espanyol, Getafe or Levante, among others, and also from foreign leagues. All of them willing to bet firmly on the attacker.
Last week, President Carlos Mouriño said about the striker: “We will decide the best for both sides, Borja has shown a clear commitment to Celta and will have our best understanding to stay or leave.”
The irreproachable attitude with the blue shirt of Borja Iglesias will make this summer to decide his future and, to this day, it seems complex to go through Celta.

Athletic Herrerín, from rojiblanco in San Francisco

Athletic returns to training in less than a month and the only certainty in the rojiblanca goal is that the number 1 will go through Kepa. What happens from there is still an unknown. Herrerín has gone on vacation with a pending talk with technician and club to know what his projects are since he has offers from the League and the Premier, which he would be willing to accept if he does not find a fight of equals in Bilbao.The goalkeeper is on vacation in San Francisco with his partner and last weekend made a visit to Peña Athletic de California. He brought gifts and posed with the fans dressed in different rojiblancos motives. “I’m from Athletic to death, play where I play,” he said at the end of the League while acknowledging that he had to talk to the club to discuss his future. “I want to enjoy football with a machete and playing regularly,” he said.

Hot goal

The heater of the goal continues with Remiro. The goalkeeper who has enjoyed the promotion of the Huesca is on vacation, although his representative negotiates the conditions for a contract extension. The club considers the signature non-negotiable and then deal with its assignment. The Navarre has proposals from different First Clubs, but Athletic has not given the ok to anything.
The third party is Unai Simón, who also has his agent negotiating a contract extension. The sub21 international points to an assignment in the Second Division although everything will depend what happens with those who have ahead in the ranks.

Athletic The Muniain jump

The defeat of Anoeta supposed a greater punishment for Raul Garci’a and De Marcos, who will not be able to be aligned on Saturday before the Betis by accumulation of admonitions. The fall of Raúl García leaves the lions without their top scorer. Also without the header midfielder. And the gap left by the Navarrese falls into the arms of Muniain, who has not played since the start since he recovered from the torn ligaments he suffered on September 28 in the right knee. I would start 219 days after doing it for the last time.

Ziganda has taken care of his return to the pitch – five consecutive games and never more than half an hour – and now he is shuffling a screen shot for the Navarrese imp. Especially since the departure of Aketxe to Toronto is the only specialist in the squad to play in the playmaker.

The return of Muniain is being exemplary in terms of the physical response of the player. He received medical discharge and reappeared at just six months of his injury and the return to normal dynamics has not caused any muscle injury. Warned of the need for recovery because a couple of years ago had to go through the same in the other knee, the footballer has taken the turn with less anxiety than then. He said that from the first day is handled without fear or uncertainty. His capacity for sacrifice in the long and hard training of rehabilitation have done the rest.
Setién, on the bullseye

The ownership in San Mamés is one of the small prizes that Muniain can leave the season. When it fell on September 28, few would bet that it would start any of the games of the course from the beginning.

The return to the initial formation would cross to Munian with Setién, of which it has good memory of the last time that they saw themselves in San Mamés. The Navarrese was among the elect of Valverde that on April 14, 2017 they faced Las Palmas that the Cantabrian then directed. The Lions won 5-1 and Munian made his first double in the category.

Five challenges for the final sprint of Betis

With the European classification in the pocket since last Monday, Betis faces the last three days of the championship with several goals. Some, of group, like sealing the fifth place or establishing new records for the club. Others, invidivuales, with the canary Rubén Castro as protagonist. And there are also some sentimental characters, with the last Sevillian derby of the course on the horizon …

The fifth place

Due to prestige and economic issues arising from the distribution of television rights of the centralized sale of LaLiga, Betis seeks to consolidate the fifth position in the classification it currently occupies, with five and 11 points respectively over Villarreal and Sevilla, both with a match less. The difference between the fifth and the sixth place exceeds 6 million euros in revenue.

The best Betis of the century

The Verdiblancos are one win away from equaling their best score so far this century. With 59 points they have reached the record they achieved in 2001-02, with Juande on the bench, and they are only three points out of the 62 that they added in 2004-05, led by Serra Ferrer. That year, this score allowed them to qualify for the Champions League.

A for the goal-scorer record

With 56 goals scored in the 35 league games played to date, Setién’s have already equaled the number they achieved in the 2002-03 season and are a bit short of tracing the 2012-13 record. The record so far in the 21st century, which they achieved in the 2004-05 campaign with 62 goals, is a shot of six. They need an average of

Rubén Castro, for Rincón

The circumstances of the last matches and the tough competition up front have prevented Rubén Castro from enjoying too many minutes of play. But the possibility of equaling or exceeding the record of goals of Poli Rincon, with 78 goals with Betis First, is in the mind of Setién, who seeks the ideal time for the canary to have his chance.

And of course, the derby …

After the 3-5 of the first round, the Verdiblancos seek to endorse their great course with another victory against their eternal rival in Benito Villamarín, on the penultimate day of the championship. A match in which the Nervionians could be even playing the European classification, depending on what they do this Friday against Real and on Wednesday in the game postponed against Real Madrid.two goals per match to reach it.
