Catena is in the sights of Getafe

Alejandro Catena is going to be one of the most sought-after pieces at the market close. The 25-year-old Rayo Vallecano center-back has started the season in his line, at a high level as one of the pillars of Iraola's team, and at this moment he is the target of several First-class teams. One of them, as As has learned, is Getafe. The central one would fit perfectly on the model. His numbers in the aerial game support him. Thus, last season he was the defender with the best percentage of aerial duels won in the category, numbers that placed him even among the top three in the major league comparison.

In addition, Catena adorned that statistic by being the Rayo player who made the most passes and the most recoveries accumulated for his team last season. But if there is one thing that also draws the attention of the suitors, it is their presence in the rival area. For example, the goal he scored on the first match against Sabadell and that gave Rayo the victory. Even Paco Jémez came to use him as nine last season to play the postponed second half against Albacete.

To put it in value, it can be pointed out that the center-back has scored five goals in the last 34 games with Rayo, figures for a center-back that in Spain only surpasses Sergio Ramos. Catena arrived in Vallecas in January 2019 from Reus, after having played in CD Móstoles, Navalcarnero and Marbella. He has a contract until 2023.
