first_imgThe first season at the professional level of Mohammed Salisu (Accra, 1999) It is attracting the attention of clubs across Europe. The Ghanaian central Valladolid, only 20 years old, is being a key player in the Pucelano team, which is fighting not to descend especially because of its lack of forcefulness in attack (only 19 goals in 23 games), but which is showing great defensive solvency : With 25 goals received, it is the sixth team that has scored the least in LaLiga. Salisu is fundamental in Sergio’s system, despite being his first campaign at the highest level: he has played 97% of the minutes of the domestic championship. It has clearly imposed on Javi Sánchez, Real Madrid player assigned in Pucela that has not yet debuted in LaLiga, punished for problems in his left ankle. One of the teams that has set its sights on Salisu is Real Madrid, interested in its conditions, its youth and an affordable price: its clause is 12 million euros, with a contract that joins Valladolid until 2022. At the moment the white club studies the option from a distance, although the relations between Madrid and Valladolid are excellent, thanks above all to the friendship that unites his two presidents, Florentino Pérez and Ronaldo Nazario. The incorporation of Salisu would fit into the policy of signings that Madrid has been promoting in recent years: young players at affordable prices with the intention that their final hatching arrives wearing the white shirt, but without ruling out assignments that encourage their progression. Thus came Asensio, Ceballos, Lunin, Odegaard, Kubo …In fact, the first example of this policy was another central, Raphael Varane, signed on the recommendation of Zidane in exchange for 10 million from the Lens in the summer of 2011. Salisu would be part of the renewal of the defense center, which It already has two men in their thirties: Ramos (33) and Nacho (30). But Madrid already knows that it will have competition if it decides to launch for its signing next summer. Atlético has already established contacts, as the player fits the profile of the defender that Simeone wants: blunt above thanks to its 187 centimeters and very competent in tight spaces. This season he has won 61% of the duels in which he has participated, has recovered 101 balls for Valladolid and has won 60 aerial duels. And he has done everything without hardly incurring disciplinary actions: he has only committed 17 offenses, one every 118 minutes. Atleti, in addition, would provide facilities to Valladolid, allowing the player to remain a year assigned in Pucela so that your training can take its course without interruptions.center_img In the Premier League there are several teams with Salisu on the agenda, with Manchester United leading of all of them. Next summer aims to be an intense bid by the Ghanaian defender, who has won the spotlight in just half a season in professional football.Valencia and Getafe triedSalisu has had the opportunity to change clubs recently, as two of the top-ranked teams have asked Valladolid for him. The first was Valencia, who studied his signing as a replacement for Garay, operated earlier this week due to rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee. Being a long-term injury, the ché team has an extra period to cover the Argentine central square, although the winter market is already closed.And the other interested club has been Getafe, which has suffered the loss of Cabrera, signed by Espanyol in exchange for the nine million of its termination clause. In both cases, Salisu has decided to remain in Valladolid to fight for permanence, aware that he will not lack opportunities in the summer of 2020.last_img read more
