In one of the most shocking news of this season, Europa League champions Sevilla has been forced to include their entire squad in the transfer list as the Spanish giants have racked up a hefty debt. The club seems to be going through one of the roughest phases in their history as they have decided to offload their entire squad.
Sevilla puts every player on transfer list
In one of the catastrophic news of this month, it is heard that seven-time Europa League winners Sevilla has decided to put their entire squad on sale as they vow to resolve their 90 million pound debt. The champions seem to have fallen from grace as they have to clear their debt. Even after securing another Champions League stage next season after clinching Europa League by defeating Jose Mourinho’s Roma, they could be without their seasoned players.
According to news journal Marca, Sevilla has decided that they will allow every player to leave the club at the right price. Mendilibar’s side had managed a mediocre 12th place finish in the La Liga after a horrendous start when they even had to overlook relegation at one point. But, their bright spot in this season came when they had defeated Roma in the finals of European elite Europa League, clinching it for a record seventh time in history. The huge debt could be instrumental in sporting director Monchi’s departure from the club, who recently joined English side Aston Villa.
No shortage of potential suitors
Owing to their European success, Sevilla would not be deemed short of suitors who would look out for the stars of their club. The Premier League would be eager to announce some big names in the upcoming days. Heavyweights like Ivan Rakitic, Youssef-En-Nesyri and Erik Lamela would be the top targets for some of the clubs as they have had an impressive season. Moroccan Nesyri could swap some big deals after a swashbuckling season where he scored 18 goals in all competition and a World Cup semifinal would definitely add a value to his profile.
Several other players like goalie Bounou will be up for grabs as he also had an impressive season with his exploits in the World Cup worthy of any Premier League club.
Now, it remains a matter of great interest as when will the European champions be able to solve their hefty debts and to which new destinations do their stars travel for the next season.
