Osasuna confirms that the transfer of Manu Sánchez was tied

Manu Sánchez (20 years old) is having a busy summer and is still waiting for his future to be resolved. Atlético's left side is doing the preseason with the first team, but he still does not know for sure where he will play this season. The youth squad debuted last year with the majors on matchday 17 of LaLiga at the Wanda Metropolitano against Osasuna and he also did it as a starter. However, he did not have opportunities again until the return of the competition after the coronavirus break, except for the Cup match against Cultural. Total, participated in six games, adding 446 ’.

For this campaign, Atlético's initial idea was to recover Brazilian Caio Henrique, which was on loan to the Guild of his country, to become the replacement for Lodi in the left-handed lane. In this situation, a way out would be sought for Manu with the aim of adding minutes in a First team. The first candidate that rang was Osasuna and some information gave for sure the arrival of the mattress canterano to Pamplona on loan. However, in the end the Brazilian was sold to Monaco in exchange for eight million euros plus two in variables and that modified the rojiblanco plan.

Caio's departure paralyzed the trip of the subsidiary player to Navarre lands and ruined a negotiation that from the pamplonica club they have confirmed that it was closed. And it is that the sports director of Osasuna, Braulio Vazquez, has ensured that “It is true that we had the signing of Manu Sánchez very on track. We had everyone's ‘ok’, but in the end an Atlético sale changed everything”. However, the rojillos still do not have to rule out the arrival of Manu to the Arrasate squad, since Atlético must decide what to do with their youth squad. Simeone's They have been interested in the Uruguayan side of Getafe, Mathías Olivera, and in case I finally sign for the colchoneros, they would let him out. For now, they have chosen renew your contract until 2025, as a sign that they have it, either immediately or in the medium term.

Therefore, it is to be hoped that if they decide to temporarily part with Manu, Osasuna is the first on the list, although maybe Navarrese decide to contribute for other options. Braulio does not rule it out, stating that “We are evaluating everything, since Íñigo Pérez, Roncaglia can also play there or we can also play with lanes”. Another possibility is that the recent U21 international I ended up entering the Olivera operation, since the getafenses would like it to be the replacement for the Uruguayan in the Bordalás team.
