The situation of Mamadou Sylla, a 'problem' for Girona

He only has one year left on his contract and his excellent rojiblanco season has aroused the interest of several clubs, such as Rayo Vallecano


Mamadou Sylla's is a story that has already been lived many times in the Second Division and that will surely be lived in the future: a player who comes to the League without a great poster, without a great contract and who arouses interest in his first season of several clubs of greater potential or category. A well-known story, which has already happened to Girona several times, and which now perfectly embodies the forward of Senegalese origin: Mamadou interests several Second and First clubs.

In the absence of Stuani due to injury for much of the season, Sylla assumed the leadership of the Girona forward. And he assumed it with goals, assists and good performances that already in January aroused the interest of the two greats in the category (today in First): Espanyol and Mallorca. Nine goals in 36 games are his cover letter on his return to the category and his name appears on the agenda of several clubs for the next campaign. Also among some of the First Division: Rayo Vallecano has it among its options to strengthen the lead. At the moment it is only interest, but nobody rules out that an offer can be formalized.

For Girona the situation, however, is complicated. The best solution for their interests would be to renew Mamadou (something that was the intention of the club) because his contract ends in a year and he is also far from the weight that the footballer has in the team. Also of his performance last year. The Montilivi club has him and they know that he is an important asset, but the intention of the footballer remains to be seen. Today all the stages are open: that he renew, that he leaves this summer or that he fulfills his contract and leaves free next summer.
