Sevilla ‘transfer list entire squad’ due to ‘huge €90m debt’

Sevila ‘transfer list entire squad’ due to ‘huge €90m debt’

According to reports, Sevilla is facing financial difficulties ahead of the upcoming season, leading them to make their entire first team squad available for transfer. 

Despite a challenging season in La Liga where the club came close to relegation, Sevilla ended on a high note by winning their seventh Europa League title in May, defeating Roma, managed by Jose Mourinho, in a penalty shootout.

 This victory should have brought optimism for Champions League football in the next season and the opportunity to strengthen the squad. However, a recent report paints a contrasting picture, revealing alarming claims about the club’s financial situation shortly after the season ended.

Sevilla ‘transfer list entire squad’

As per information from Pedro Pablo Parrado of Radio MARCA, the president of Sevilla, Pepe Castro, has reportedly informed the club’s manager, José Luis Mendilibar, that the team has accumulated debts amounting to €90 million.

 Consequently, in order to address this financial situation, it is stated that every player from the squad that won the Europa League has been made available for transfer during the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to the report, it is emphasized that Sevilla is in dire need of selling players to address their financial difficulties, and the sale of just one or two key players would not be sufficient to resolve the club’s problems. 

Prominent players such as Youssef En-Nesyri, Yassine Bounou, and Lucas Ocampos are mentioned as the initial candidates who could be sold, with Ocampos already being linked to a potential move to Fulham in the Premier League. 

The club has reportedly reached out to various clubs across Europe, including Manchester United, the team they defeated en route to their European triumph, in an effort to expedite the process of offloading their players.

According to the report, the recently discovered financial issues at Sevilla are said to have influenced the departure of their former sporting director, Monchi, who joined Aston Villa.

 The club now faces the challenge of managing potential mass departures from the squad while also ensuring they can field a competitive team across all competitions in the upcoming season. The need to address their financial situation has added complexity to the task of maintaining competitiveness on the field.
