Almeria are still looking to adapt their entire squad to La Liga. The Andalusians want to bring Leo Baptistao back to Spain after two years in China and two years in Brazil.
Umar Sadiq has disrupted all of UD Almeria’s plans. His departure from the Andalusian club is imminent and certain after the sporting management confirmed his sale for a price of around 30 million euros.
The departure of the African means that the Andalusian club will have to make a move in the transfer market to replace him. The board need to move quickly, as in six days’ time they will be hosting the league and Champions League winners.
The option the newly promoted side are considering is to bring Leo Baptistao back to Spain. Santos FC have already rejected a first offer from Almeria, but they have made another one that exceeds what they presented in the previous one.
The Brazilians will not be closed to the attacker’s return to Spanish football, as his contract expires in June 2023 and the player has asked not to travel to Curitibia for the next Brazilian League match.
