The Brazilian, highlighted in the visit to Real Madrid, is already Betis’s most valuable footballer together with Fekir for transfermarkt.com
Emerson Royal It was again last Saturday, in the game against Real Madrid in the Alfredo Di Stéfano, one of the best players in the Betis. The 22-year-old Brazilian full-back continues to show, even in theoretically the most complicated matches, his extraordinary projection. A ‘rush’ that has already made him the most valuable footballer of the Verdiblanca squad for transfermarkt.com, next to Fekir.
His tremendous physical power and a continuous improvement both in technical and tactical matters, especially defensively, join his undeniable potential in attack, which make him a headache day after day for rival defenses. This season he already has four assists on goal, 10 since he reached Heliopolis a couple of years ago, to which he adds five goals and an increasing role in the offensive plot of his team.
Last Saturday, on the visit to Valdebebas, was able to stop Rodrygo Y Asensio, who swapped their positions several times, and after the break, his friend Vinícius Junior, leaving some extraordinary statistics: four clearances, a blocked shot, an interception, six duels won out of 10 on the ground, a 79% success rate in the pass and four aerial duels won in four attempts, including one that served to serve an arrival of Casemiro one meter from the goal line.
This constant evolution of Emerson its market value has skyrocketed. In order to transfermarkt.com, the Brazilian full-back, an absolute international, already costs 25 million euros, the same as the French Fekir and more than Channels (20 million) or Guido Rodriguez (18 million). A ‘high’ that raises doubts in the Barcelona, owner of 50% of his rights and who has an option to recover the footballer this next summer.
The Barça must decide
The in the Camp Nou they are not sure whether to recover Emerson to cash in on a transfer to another club this summer (in which case the Betis would have the right to 50% of the sale) or pay the nine million for the side to join the squad of Ronald Koeman and compete for a spot on the team with Dest, Sergi Roberto and even Mingueza (in this case, the Betis would keep 20% of the player’s pass for the future).
What does seem confirmed is that Emerson has known how to make the most of its stage in the Benito Villamarin. A six-month adaptation to the orders of Setien, a year of confirmation and growth with Ruby, and this second full season, of explosion, under the orders of Pellegrini, who is knowing how to polish the Brazilian until he becomes the most valuable player in his squad and one of the wingers with the most future on the international scene.
