The RCD Espanyol will have a transfer market quite moved. Last season he finished in seventh position, confirming himself as one of the LaLiga revelation teams. The parakeets return to a European competition after 12 years and it is possible that the most decisive players of last season to leave to a club with more aspirations. We analyze the rumors and signings of Espanyol 2019/20.
Possible signings of Espanyol 2019-20
The Spanish side is living lower than signings in this market start. One of the first marches was that of his coach, Rubi, who created a Espanyol with a lot of touch and good taste. At the moment there are several names in the blue and white orbit, but everything will depend on sales. Right now there are the following players in the list:
The departure of Sergio Garcia and the doubts that there are with Hernán Pérez have caused Espanyol to be launched by a player of the band. Embarba, footballer of Rayo Vallecano, seems to be one of the perico reinforcements. It is a fast end that can play in both bands and this season has scored five goals in LaLiga.
The Madrid player ends his contract with his club in 2021 and his departure would not be negative if a good deal is achieved. The Lightning has descended this season and will want to start a new project in the Second Division, so you need to get benefits through sales. The player's price will be around three million of euros.
The Sporting footballer, who this season has played on loan at Huesca, is related to Espanyol. He is a 25 year old midfielder with good ball handling and who contributed nine assists to his team in the last league. The biggest problem with the negotiations is that Villareal, Moi's former club, is also testing him. The factor that could unbalance the balance is that Espanyol does play European competitions. At the moment, Moi has not decided and will start the preseason with Sporting de Gijón.
The Unidese player also played on loan to a Spanish team, but of the Second Division. The Cádiz was the club where Machís had a great season, especially in the second round of the championship. The footballer has offers of several teams of First and it seems that Udinese will let him out this summer. The 26-year-old Venezuelan played in this Copa América with his national team and scored two goals for the Vinotinto. Speed and dribbling are the main characteristics of this player.
After the departure of Roberto, Espanyol seeks a goalkeeper who competes with Diego López for the ownership. The chosen one seems to be Bono. The Girona goalkeeper sees his departure from the Catalan club quite clear after the relegation to the Second Division. At the moment, the Moroccan player is focused on the African Cup and when the tournament finishes, he will sit down to negotiate. It is an agile goalkeeper with plenty of reflexes, also with a pretty good age for a goalkeeper (28 years old). Its termination clause is five million, although Espanyol will try to cheapen the operation.
The Young promise of Valencia and last MVP of the U-20 World Cup it could come as a loan to the parakeet club. Valencia is testing the transfer of the South Korean to take experience in a Primera team with guaranteed minutes. Levante, Granada and Osasuna are also on the lookout for the 18-year-old footballer. If it were confirmed his assignment, it would be a great operation of Espanyol, which would be done with a football player with a tremendous future.
The Venezuelan side was one of the keys of this European Espanyol. But his transfer period ended and he has now returned to Málaga. The parakeets had a purchase option of three million euros, but they saw an excessive amount. The good news for Espanyol is that the Andalusian club has not ascended to the First Division, so it will be easier to negotiate a transfer by Roberto Rosales. In addition, the player ends contract in 2020, another factor that should facilitate his departure from Malaga.
Bajas del Espanyol 2019-20
