After David Silva, Real Sociedad is now going for Jeison Murillo

The txuri-urdin team is in talks with Sampdoria and the Colombian central defender's agent to try to sign him.


Real Sociedad continues to aim high in this strange transfer market. After closing one of the summer pumps, David Silva's return to LaLiga, he has now set his eyes on Colombian central defender Jeison Murillo, who belongs to Sampdoria and who has completed the last half season on loan at Celta de Vigo. Precisely, the Vigo team has been trying to close its contract for some time, but it has not finished reaching an agreement with the Italian entity, according to various information from the transalpine country.

Celta have now found themselves with another tough competitor, a Real who had as a priority since the end of the last season to reinforce the center of the rear. The favorite seemed to be Mario Hermoso, but the Atlético de Madrid center-back is a very complex and expensive asset to close, and if he could close, he would arrive as a loan. So the San Sebastian club has been exploring other possibilities that it has in its portfolio for a long time. And the option of the Colombian international likes, so from the San Sebastian entity they would have entered into conversations with both Sampdoria and his agent, Rocco Dozzini, to try to hire him. And it seems that they have found the door open to reinforce their defense with a player with extensive experience in the Spanish league, and who has already been through important clubs such as Valencia and Barcelona.

De Murillo likes his forcefulness at Real, his departure from behind with the ball played and, above all, his versatility, because he can play both right and left central. In fact, in Valencia with Marcelino, with whom he showed his best virtues, he occupied the position of left-handed central despite being right-handed, and this is highly valued by the realistic technical secretary, who considers it key to reinforce that part of the rear. La Real has been following the Colombian for some time, but their interest is recent, aware that it is not an easy operation, due to the amounts requested by Sampdoria, which would be around 10 million euros and that Celta would be willing to offer.
