Real Valladolid makes Gonzalo Plata official

The Ecuadorian international arrives in Zorrilla on loan from Sporting de Portugal with a purchase option.


Real Valladolid has made official the arrival of attacker Gonzalo Plata. The Ecuadorian international arrives on loan from Sporting de Portugal with a purchase option that, according to the Portuguese newspaper Record, the first to uncover the operation, could be estimated at ten million euros. With his incorporation, the Blanquivioleta team closes the band positions, after rejecting throughout the day on Monday the option of Iván Alejo from Valladolid.

Personal friend of Stiven Plaza, with whom he played in Independiente del Valle, will not join the Pacheta discipline until he finishes his stay with the national team, with which he has played 14 games to date, scoring five goals, despite his early age (20 years), to face Paraguay, Chile and Uruguay. Precisely, he left the black-blue entity in the summer of 2019 to join the Leon club.

In the 2019-20 season, marked by the pandemic, he had little prominence, touching just 1,500 minutes (1,455) between all competitions, encounters in which he scored three goals and distributed two assists. The scenario did not improve in 2020-21; On the contrary, although he won the League together with former white-player Pedro Porro, he was ostracized for Rúben Amorim and played only 390 minutes divided into 14 stakes, in which he scored one goal and gave two.

In this way, after entering a single call-up in the six official games that Sporting has played so far, he had the doors wide open to a departure, taking into account the consideration of his club as a promising asset, which paid out more than one million euros for him two years ago and with whom, despite everything, it was revalued to five million according to Transfermarkt, a value with which it reaches Valladolid.
