Sociedad will sign at least one striker: Sorloth likes it, but you have to negotiate
On the hunt for a ‘nine’ urgently. The ramblings are over: the departure of Alexander Isak forces us to move in the final stretch of the market, whose doors close within an exact week. Sociedad have got down to work to undertake a signing up front that becomes necessary. Isak was the starting striker, Carlos Fernández is injured and Karrikaburu has a Sanse record and is only 19 years old.
Isak’s departure means that the incorporation of two footballers for the attack cannot be ruled out. As soon as the Swede leaves, there will be two free players in the first squad, with the room for maneuver that exists for Turrientes and Navarro to play with a Sanse number. Alexander Sorloth is to the liking of Imanol Alguacil and the Real has him very guarded. With the record income of 70 million for Isak, Real has, a priori, financial margin to sign the Norwegian, whose value continues to fluctuate between 14 and 15 million euros. The plan would be to negotiate with Leipzig.
Sorloth would happily return to Real. If his market price and the chip that should be awarded to him enter the club’s calculations, he would be the most natural fit option. In the first three days of the Bundesliga, the Norwegian has only played five minutes with Leipzig. This weekend he was absent due to muscle problems.
Moussa Dembele or Sadiq
That Real receive 70 million euros and keep them warm, translates into an idyllic scenario for the representatives to turn to speak well of their players at Anoeta. This is how football is set up. The Real tries to act with coherence.
The French press echoed late yesterday an offer from Real to Lyon for striker Moussa Dembélé. The proposal would be for 10 million, half of what the French team invested to sign him from Atlético de Madrid a year ago. Canal Sur reported on a realistic offer of 18 million for Umar Sadiq, Almería’s powerful striker.
