Real Betis has put up an offer for the teenage winger worth €10 million plus midfielder Guido Rodriguez, as the La Liga team is desperate to capture Ez Abde from FC Barcelona, according to David Bernabeu Reverter of SPORT.
Open to Real Betis’s move, Abde
Being dissatisfied with Xavi Hernandez’s ability to provide him with enough playing time, Abde seems eager to leave Barcelona.
That is exactly what Real Betis is offering the 21-year-old player, in addition to the chance to participate in European events going forward.
The Moroccan international so seems to be drawn to the prospect of joining Manuel Pellegrini’s team.
Actually, rumours of a deal between Abde and Real Betis have been around for some time.
Offer Guido Rodriguez to Betis
Real Betis had previously offered €10 million for half of Abde’s rights, but according to the previously cited story, they have since changed their offer.
According to the report, Los Verdiblancos have made an offer of €10 million to acquire Abde’s services, along with Argentine midfielder Guido Rodriguez.
In the past, when Barcelona was searching for a new pivot midfielder, Xavi and the team had Rodriguez on their radar.
However, Oriol Romeu, a 29-year-old who won the FIFA World Cup 2022 with Argentina, was signed by the Catalans earlier this summer, therefore Rodriguez is no longer needed at the team.
Therefore, it doesn’t seem likely that the La Liga winners will accept Real Betis’ offer.
Both teams, nevertheless, think that a deal may be reached before the transfer window closes in less than a day. It’s unclear if Abde will be able to relocate to Betis.
