Rico affirms that there will be departures and some more arrivals in the squad

The sporting director of Sporting warns that the injection of money from LaLiga "will not change the policy of the club, not go crazy when it does not play."


Fran Villalba was the novelty of Sporting's training session, held this afternoon at Mareo. The Valencian trained with the other three signings for this season and the rest of his teammates, waiting only for the arrival of Puma Rodríguez. At the moment, there are five signings for the new project that David Gallego has in his hands in whose squad there will still be more movements, as advanced today by sports director Javier Rico during Villalba's presentation.

"There will be players who have to leave and surely some more arrival", said Rico specifically on this matter, although he clarified that the injection of money for the clubs, known in the last hours as the LaLiga Impulso plan, does not change the plans of the Sporting. "It is not going to change the club's policy of complying with the rules, of keeping your feet on the ground and not going crazy when you don't play," said the sporting director.

Regarding the exits and referring to those players "who have to go out", the first name on the table is Álvaro Vázquez. The forward has known before starting the preseason that Gallego does not have him but the Catalan wishes to fulfill his contract that ends at the end of this season that is about to begin.The other expected exit is the sale of Uros Djurdjevic, increasingly unlikely because no offers come in that meet Sporting's claims for a transfer. The Montenegrin striker, second top scorer in the last league, performs the preseason normally.

Sporting does not contemplate any other transfer at the moment, with homegrown players as protagonists. José Gragera and Pedro Díaz are the ones with the most presence in the market, especially the former in which several clubs have shown interest. The rojiblanca entity always refers to the termination clause of both.
