Emerson, Cordón’s ‘impossible’ dream: “We would like him to stay for many years”
ANDl sports director general of Betis, Antonio Cordon, he works already with his sights set on the next season. A planning in which you will have to resolve several issues, including two operations that link Betis Y Barcelona. One of them is related to Juan Miranda. The other, with the Brazilian Emerson, a footballer that the Verdiblanco club would like to retain, but whose future is in the hands of the Catalan club.
Yesterday, during an interview with international media organized by The league, Cord He referred to the case of Emerson. “We have all seen growth, an important evolution. He has grown with the club, with the other teammates. He is a player who is prepared to play in any team,” the Betic manager began by pointing out.
“Of course we would like him to stay with us for many years, but we all know how the contractual circumstances are. Now we are not concerned about this, we are thinking of getting the team to perform, we are not thinking about the future, we are going to wait 15 days and it will be the moment to make the decisions, “he insisted Cord, placing any relevant decision on the days after the last league match.
A complex contract
Emerson, who played on loan from him Athletic Mineiro in the Betis during half a season, it was acquired in the summer of 2019 by the Barcelona for 12 million euros. He then sold 50% of the pass to the Betis for six million, with a contract full of clauses for which the Brazilian would play two years in the Benito Villamarin before the Catalan club had a chance to get it back.
That option can be exercised this summer, paying nine million euros, and the Betis would keep a percentage of the pass that would be higher if Emerson is transferred this same summer or less if he joins the discipline of the team of Koeman. If he Barça did not execute the buyback, a period would be opened for the Betis do the same, with the same quantities and conditions.
During the last weeks, the supposed interest of several relevant European clubs in the Brazilian has leaked, such as the Milan, the PSG or even the Bayern Munich. The last word, in any case, will be first Barcelona, which is who can contractually dispose of the footballer, and then the player, who will also have to make a decision based on what the Catalan club proposes.
The other case that concerns Betis Y Barcelona, in addition to amounts still pending for the transfer of Junior firpo, It’s of Juan Miranda. The side of Olive groves, loaned this season to the Verdiblanco team, ends the contract with the Barça entity, which, as in the case of Mingueza You can extend your stay at the Camp Nou unilaterally.
Of course, if you execute that clause, Miranda would automatically have the number and salary of the first team of the Barça, so the decision is complex and affects both sporting and economic issues. The Betis is waiting to act accordingly as he would like to continue counting on the young footballer from Olive groves, whose performance in his first year in First is convincing.
