The Argentine Guido Rodríguez is happy at Betis and this has been expressed in numerous appearances before the media. However, in the last one he went further, since the defensive midfielder spoke clearly about his future. He went on an instagram live with his wife and there he had no doubts. “But where am I going to go? I’m staying at Betis”was Guido’s resounding statement when asked by a Betis fan.
The fact is that everything indicated that his departure in the next summer market was a sure thing. From Betis it has already been made public that it is necessary to sell soccer players to balance the accounts before June 30. And Guido Rodríguez is one of the players with the largest market from the Manuel Pellegrini campus. In addition, his contract expires in June 2024, so if he stayed in Heliopolis he would start next season with only one more year signed, which would force Betis to change plans.
Guido Rodríguez landed at the Benito Villamarín in the winter market of the 2019/20 season. Betis paid between three million euros to América de México, leaving another three million in variables. In addition, the Mexican team has 10% of the surplus value of a possible sale of the player, something that Betis also takes into account. After some hesitant beginnings, Guido Rodríguez has found his best version under the command of Manuel Pellegrini. With 3,663 minutes accumulated between all competitions, Nabil Fekir is the only player that the Chilean has used morewhich has caused Guido to have also become a fixed in the calls of Argentina.
