THE BALL – Closed door to Vietto (Sporting)


A proposal from Al Hilal, from Saudi Arabia, has come to the offices of SAD Leonina in recent days to hire Argentine striker Luciano Vietto. But the numbers placed on the table, € 7 M, were not enough to convince the Leon administration to give up the player. In addition, another factor was very important in the decision not to accept the transfer of the striker and was linked to the fact that the proposal was made at a time when the lions could no longer go to the market to look for a replacement for the influential player.

In other words, weighing the pros and cons, Sporting decided to refuse the proposal, thus closing the door to an eventual transfer, even more so when the lions only have 50 percent of the player’s pass, which, if accepted, an offer of € 7 M, would allow a financial contribution of just € 3.5 M – the remaining 50 percent of the Argentine’s pass belongs to Atlético Madrid, which secured this percentage when the agreement was signed by Gelson Martins.
